West London Compass are collaborating with Make Votes Matter South West London to organise an event in Richmond.
Speakers include: Jonathan Bartley, co-leader of the Green Party; Vince Cable, ex MP for Twickenham; an unconfirmed Labour speaker; and non-party speakers including Klina Jordan from Make Votes Matter; Frances Foley from Compass; and Peter Macfadyen, Independent from Frome and author of Flat Pack Democracy.
The event will include discussion of the mooted Progressive Alliance in the West London area. However, Klina Jordan - facilitator for Make Votes Matter - will be there making the case that democracy must come first; that progressive and non-progressive parties alike must cooperate on the single issue of electoral reform if we are to succeed in getting a properly functioning democratic system, and all the things that rely on this.
The event will be a mixture of talks and group discussions.
