The Pandemic has exposed the underlying faults in our society and our economy. Ten years of austerity cuts have meant that our public services have been shockingly ill-equipped to deal with this crisis. Wage freezes, insecure work and lack of employment rights have left people facing potential hardship and an uncertain future. But as more and more people start to question how our society is organised, it is vital that the left is able to provide answers. If we don’t, then others will. Claim the Future, led by John McDonnell MP, sets out to develop some of the solutions needed to reframe our economy and bring people together to secure change. This session will consider some of the policy interventions needed to ensure that people have the basics for a decent and secure life: enough to eat, a roof over their heads and the care that we need at different points in our lives. With John McDonnell MP, Nadia Whittome MP, Apsana Begum MP & Ian Byrne MP.
