Presented by Jess Green In Association with Discerning Nights
A hard-hitting, intelligent, Performance Poetry show about Labour, Tories and the division of the left.
When BBC Slam Champion, Jess Green joined the Labour Party at university in 2007 she doubled the number of members who met weekly in the Liverpool Philarmonic pub. Since then she’s stuck by them through the downfall of Tony Blair, the disappointment of Gordon Brown and the monolith of Ed Miliband. And now after a decade of keeping her membership card firmly at the back of her wallet she’s fallen head-over-heels in love with Jeremy Corbyn and his raw socialist magnetism but if only everyone else agreed.
How will we ever win another general election when the left is so divided?

“Fantastic.” – Jeremy Corbyn
