This looks like an absolutely excellent idea:
Campaign group Compass is holding its annual conference at the Institute of Education in London on 25th June.
The Robin Cook Memorial Conference will bring together over 1000 centre-left activists, campaigners and thinkers, for discussion and debate.
The event will feature over 90 speakers including: Jon Cruddas MP; Caroline Lucas MP; Chuka Umunna MP; Prof Richard Sennett; Baroness Prof Ruth Lister CBE; Polly Toynbee, The Guardian; Mehdi Hasan, New Statesman; John Harris, The Guardian; John Kampfner, Index on Censorship; Hilary Wainwright, Red Pepper; Frances O’Grady, TUC; Paul Mason, BBC; Peter Kellner, YouGov; Andrew Simms, nef; Deborah Grayson, Climate Rush; Kat Banyard, UK Feminista and many more.
Left-wing blogs will be hosting their own debates for the first time.
Liberal Conspiracy, Left Foot Forward and LabourList will join UKuncut, Action Aid, Child Poverty Action Group; the Co-Operative Party, 38 Degrees, The Electoral Reform Society, The Equality Trust, Fabian Society, Friends of the Earth, Green Party, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Progress, Red Pepper, Republic, Searchlight, Shelter, Robin Hood Tax Campaign, Social Liberal Forum, Unions 21; UK Feminista, World Development Movement and many others in holding events.
For once we\’ve got them all gathered in one place it\’ll be easy enough to pack them off to somewhere where they can do no more harm.
Any of those internment camps on the Isle of Man still available? Anyone finished work on a teleportation machine yet?
