Labour MP Yvette Cooper addressed the FEPS-Fabian Summer Conference 2019.
JOHN DENHAM: Is it possible for Labour to heal our nation’s divisions? There is a way forward in the politics of the common ground.
In a major intervention co-hosted by the Fabian Society and Hope not Hate, former prime minister Gordon Brown called for unity and warned of the dangers of 'narrow nationalism.'
The FEPS-Fabian Summer conference will focus on both domestic and international policy priorities for the next Labour government, examine the impact of the European elections, and will ask what comes next in the Brexit process.
GURINDER JHANS: As Brexit dominates the legislative agenda and the government machinery has become preoccupied and paralysed with leaving the EU, social mobility efforts have stalled.
ANAND MENON: Politicians are struggling to attract support in a nation where how you feel about Brexit matters more than anything else but there is a way of overcoming the tribalism.
