Pragmatism versus Populism: Building a winning Labour Project in the age of anti-politics

The 2016 Antcliffe Lecture with Tristram Hunt MP

Tristram Hunt is Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central. From October 2013 until September 2015, Tristram served as Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary focusing on developing Labour’s policy on teachers’ professional development, vocational education and early years education.

Speaking in the aftermath of the General Election results, he called on Labour’s ruling National Executive Committee “not to rush our election”, saying there was time for a “brutal post-mortem” about Labour’s “underlying philosophy and thinking”.

The lecture will take place at 5.30pm in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre at Trinity College; it will be followed by a short question and answer session, and a drinks reception.
