It’s Bloody Complicated: Progressive Alliances Everywhere


Across the nations, regions, towns and cities of the UK, a new way of doing politics is emerging.

Far from the adversarial politics encouraged by Westminster’s first-past-the-post electoral system, politicians and people are working together across parties for progressive change.

Joining us to discuss the art, benefits and challenges of progressive alliances are:

  • Anthony Slaughter, Leader of the Wales Green Party, which recently announced an electoral alliance with Plaid Cymru in Cardiff
  • Lucy Nesthingha, Liberal Democrat Leader of Cambridgeshire County Council, which is run in a joint administration with Labour and independents
  • Peter Marland, Labour & Co-operative Leader of Milton Keynes Council, which is run by a ‘Progressive Alliance’ of Labour and the Lib Dems.

Join us live to put your questions to Anthony, Lucy and Peter – and to find out how to build a progressive alliance where you are.
