Speaker: Robert Ford, author of ‘Revolt On The Right’ 

UKIP made big advances in the 2015 general election, often at the expense of Labour. They took twice as many votes from Labour as they did from the Tories, came second in 120 seats,  and are now Labour’s main opponents in many northern constituencies. In 57 seats won by the Conservatives, the Tory majority over Labour was lower than number of votes won by UKIP.

In his 2014 book “Revolt On The Right’, Robert Ford warned that UKIP could start eating into Labour’s vote in this way.

At this discussion meeting Robert will look at what lessons are to be learnt from May 2015, and how we go about winning back voters from UKIP.

There will be a bar available for drinks and refreshments before and after the talk.

he hall is fully accessible, but if you have any special access needs please let us know. Disabled badge holders can normally park outside the hall.

The nearest car park for other drivers is on Nunnery Lane, about five minutes walk away.


Danny Golding
