Meeting Room 8, Brighton Centre, BN1 2GR
Monday 11 Sep 17
12:45 pm - 2:00 pm
June saw the third general election in a row where Westminster’s voting system failed to do what it says on the tin – produce a ‘strong’ government. Parties were again forced to focus on a handful of largely wealthier ‘marginals’ – meaning the millions of people in safe seats could effectively be ignored by the political parties. And 3.5m Labour votes in Labour-winning constituencies were wasted – they didn’t go to electing an MP. Yet the labour movement has often been at the forefront of democratic reform. With Britain at a constitutional crossroads, hear progressive perspectives on the difference a fair voting system can make – and how unions can be part of a radical and inspiring agenda for equality at the ballot box.
