The British Election and Political Crisis: Corbyn versus Johnson

December 8 / 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm EST

free

Having recently returned from canvassing in the British election in Yorkshire and London (and after earlier attending the Labour Party Conference and speaking at The World Transformed, Momentum and UnIte the Union events), Leo Panitch will address the strategic orientations, pitfalls and dilemmas faced by the Jeremy Corbyn leadership of the Labour Party in attempting to dislodge the Conservative Party government led by Boris Johnson. Britain goes to the polls on December 12, bringing the political crisis over Brexit to a head, and with Labour offering the most direct challenge to neoliberal policies in the UK since Margaret Thatcher came to power 40 years ago. Leo Panitch is co-author of The End of Parliamentary Socialism and co-editor of the Socialist Register.
