One Nation Launch – thanks to everyone who came along and made it a success

16th January, 2013 4:59 pm

A big thank you to everyone who came to our pamphlet launch (and drinks event afterwards) last night in Westminster. Around 200 people (including dozens of MPs and peers) were crammed into Committee Room 10 in Parliament to hear Jon Cruddas Chair a debate on One Nation Labour, with thoughtful contributions from Hilary Cottam, Lord Glasman and John Denham.

We’re now mulling over a few ideas for what we do next with the pamphlet (including potentially a number of events around the country and a hard copy of the pamphlet which we hope will be available soon for a very reasonable price). In the meantime, if you want to know first about any of our future events – don’t forget to sign up to our email list, by filling in th box on the right of this (and every) page.

For those who weren’t there, below is a picture of the crowd last night. It was standing room only. (Yes, that’s David Miliband in the front row, and if you look closely, Lord Prescott is stood at the back). Thanks again to them, and everyone else who attended – and apologies to those who couldn’t get into the room, we were surprised/humbled by how popular the event was.

Those who haven’t done so yet can download the pamphlet by clicking on the cover picture to the right of this post.

    What’s here for Scotland ? Or Wales ? Or NI ? Is One Nation the right terminology in a United Kingdom of 4 nations ? Just saying

    “and if you look closely, Lord Prescott is stood at the back”

    Lord Prescott is STANDING at the back. Did your Cambridge education not teach you that Mark, or is that the point?

    Are there any speakers who would present on this subject to Labour or Co-op Party meetings?

    Weekly Survey: What will the election look like?

    It’s finally here. The last week. Five years have led to this and over the next few days we could see a Labour Prime Minister walk into 10 Downing Street. But before then, there is the little matter of the election. We want to know how LabourList readers think the votes will go. We’ll reveal the results after polls close on Thursday night. First, what generally will be the result? Labour largest party or the Tories? Will one party get […]
