Labour students

So, back to Manchester University Union today to speak to Labour Students national conference. It was just brilliant to speak again in the Union Debating Hall where I began my political career some 16 years ago. Labour Students, under today’s

amazing leadership team of Sarah Mulholland et al is in fantastic health – and Manchester Labour Club is twice as big as when i left the union. My point this afternoon was really simple. We have to win the political debate about the right answers to the downturn; but as we repair the damage of a market without borders that appears to have lost its moral boundaries, we have to win a debate about the future too. And our younger members should help lead the debate about the decade ahead, and the kind of economy and the kind of society we want to emerge from this downturn.
