Britain 2015: is there a new centre ground and how does Labour capture it? In Liverpool
Thursday, April 12, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (WET)
Liverpool, United Kingdom
This event is part of our regional series which is based on the ‘new centre-ground’ theme that has been developed by Ed Miliband. This follows the launch in January of a Progress and Centre for American Progress pamphlet, authored by Liam Byrne MP, looking at different aspects of ‘the new centre-ground’ and the policies progressives around the world will need to develop in order to win reelection.
Our events will focus on some of the policy themes which are believed to constitute the new centre-ground. These are a new fiscal realism by paying down the deficit and getting people into work; a new economy creating good growth that combines both the market and smart governance; a new welfare state that drives the rate of employment; an aim to draw not just on the wealth of nations but the 'hidden wealth of nations'; and, finally, to make taxpayers money go as far as possible in tough times.
We will be in Liverpool on the 12 April between 7- 8:30pm at The Devonshire Hotel, 293-297 Edge Lane, L7 9LD and it would be great if you could join us.
Luciana Berger MP - shadow energy and climate change team
Rt Hon Hazel Blears MP - former secretary of state for communities and local government
Lewis Baston - Democratic Audit
Ruth Smeeth (chair)- NEC candidate
We will be campaigning in one of Liverpool's target wards before the event from 4:30-6pm. The meeting point is UCATT 56 Derwent Rd East L13 6 QR.
