'What Next For Labour?'
Discussion, food and social event in Chiswick
Stand Up For Labour has organised an event, entitled 'What Next For Labour?' on Sunday, May 24th, at the George IV, 185 Chiswick High Road, London W4 2DR- the new MP for the Brentford & Isleworth constituency, Ruth Cadbury will be on the panel.
The event is for Labour supporters and aims to celebrate local victories and also reflect on what went wrong nationally. 'What Next for Labour?' will include six panellists and is in the format of Question Time, with audience members asking questions and making their own contributions to the discussion. This will form the start of the evening (from 5:30pm to 7pm). The panel consists of:
Ann Black (Labour NEC member) ; Ruth Cadbury (MP for Brentford & Isleworth) ; Stephen Cowan (Hammersmith & Fulham council leader) ; Jeremy Corbyn (MP for Islington North) ; Stephen Pound (MP for Ealing North)
The discussion will be followed by a social evening, with food provided by George IV and comedy from three of Stand up for Labour's favourite comedians (prolific TV comedy writer Juliet Meyers, former Red Wedge star Steve Gribbin and Stand up for Labour Act of the Year Patrick Monahan).
Stand up for Labour founder - and Brentford and Isleworth Labour Party activist - Crispin Flintoff says: 'It was fantastic that Ruth Cadbury and Rupa Huq were elected on Thursday but bitterly disappointing that Labour could not win nationally. There are a lot of miserable and angry Labour supporters out there and I'm hoping they can all come, get their frustration out, have a chat, watch comedy and get their morale back by 10pm! We have an election to win in 2020 and this is no time to mope.'
The night is Stand up for Labour's 151st event since it started in July 2012 (at George IV). Stand up for Labour has put on events in England, Scotland and Wales and raised over £100,000 for local Labour Party groups. Highlights of the nights include Denis Healey singing on stage, appearing at the historic Stratford East Theatre Royal and the iconic Ministry of Sound.
Tickets cost £5 (or £15 including food)
