Welcome to week 5! This week we have a great event lined up: a discussion between The Right Honourable Tony Benn and Sir Richard Lambert, Chancellor of the University of Warwick, on the Winter of Discontent 1978-9 and the possibility of an Autumn of Discontent 2011. The discussion will be chaired by Rodney Bickerstaffe, former General Secretary of Unison.
The discussion will take place in the Arts Centre Cinema and kicks off at 4:00pm. This is sure to be a great event and it would be brilliant to get a lot of Labour members present. You never know, we may even manage to grab a picture with the man himself. *
After the event (which is due to finish around 6pm), we shall sojourn to Leamington for pizza and post-match analysis, before descending on Kelsey’s.
It’s sure to be a fantastic night, and I hope to see as many of you there as possible!
We’ll meet in the Arts Centre cafe at around 3:45 on Tuesday. If you can’t find us then feel free to give me a ring on 07554344657.
See you on Tuesday!
*** Please note that if you want to attend the discussion you have to sign up online, as this is a University event and not a Warwick Labour event. (Well, the non-drinking part that is). Sign up here: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/alumni/news/events/mrcopeningdiscussion/bookingform/ . It is also advisable to print off your confirmation email.***
(* For the record I am, of course, referring to Mr Benn. Not that a picture with the Chancellor wouldn’t look great, but it may raise questions about our neutrality…)
