Progress | Centre-left Labour politics

48. New communications: has politics changed?

Social media has changed the way we talk to each other, changed the way we read, the way we work, changed the way we consume news, music, sport, television and art. It has even changed the way we think.

What does this mean for politics, and how parties, campaigns and activists communicate with voters – and how voters communicate with politicians?

Conor Pope discusses that with Richard Angell and journalist, director of Political Human, and host of the Zeitgeist Tapes podcast, Emma Burnell.

Progressive centre-ground Labour politics does not come for free.

It takes time, commitment and money to build a fight against the forces of conservatism. If you value the work Progress does, please support us by becoming a member, subscriber or donating.
