Since the 2010 General Election, living standards have fallen for the vast majority. While the top 1%’s fortunes have increased, the 99% have been squeezed. The economic recovery has been unfairly distributed, and social inequality is on the rise.
Speakers in this session will set the themes of the major discussions for the day – giving their analyses of where we are now and what they believe Britain needs if we are to turn this around from May 2015.
In this session speakers will have 2 minutes to present their suggestions for policies that will challenge power and inequality. Delegates will then vote on the policy they would most like the next government to adopt.
Closing the day’s debates, speakers will discuss priorities for building a more equal and progressive country. This session will look at the issues at stake at the General Election, as well as outlining an overarching vision for our society.
