THE OVERDEVELOPMENT OF LONDON AND THE UNDERDEVELOPMENT OF BRITAIN – Why a Federal State is Essential to a Better Economic Future.
- Britain’s centralized and pre-modern political system has been a major contributor to regional economic decline
- Rejuvenating our regions and nations depends on breaking Westminster’s monopoly over economic policy
- This cannot be done by ‘Northern Powerhouses’ and the like
- A better future for the North and other regions lies in re-making Britain as a modern federal state while maintaining EU membership
With speaker Jeffrey Henderson, Professor Emeritus of International Development at the University of Bristol. He is a member of the Steering Committee of the Hannah Mitchell Foundation, an organization that works for political devolution to the North of England.
Speakers and discussion exploring society today – every second Thursday of the month in the Claremont room, with discussion continuing afterwards in Assembly Bar + Kitchen.
Suggested donations of £3, but no-one turned away due to lack of funds.
