This event is part of our regional series which is based on the ‘new centre-ground’ theme that has been developed by Ed Miliband. This follows the launch in January of a Progress and Centre for American Progress pamphlet, authored by Liam Byrne MP, looking at different aspects of ‘the new centre-ground’ and the policies progressives around the world will need to develop in order to win reelection.
Our events will focus on some of the policy themes which are believed to constitute the new centre-ground. These are a new fiscal realism by paying down the deficit and getting people into work; a new economy creating good growth that combines both the market and smart governance; a new welfare state that drives the rate of employment; an aim to draw not just on the wealth of nations but the ‘hidden wealth of nations’; and, finally, to make taxpayers money go as far as possible in tough times.
We will be in Cambridge on the 22 March between 6:30- 8pm at Rochester Coffee Company, 146 High Street ME1 1ER and it would be great if you could join us.
