Owen Jones: The Politics of Hope at the Liverpool Philharmonic

Presenting to an almost full house at the Liverpool Philharmonic, columnist and author Owen Jones set the tone for the evening by appealing to the City of Liverpool’s political credentials. While it’s easy for anyone giving a politically motivated speech in Liverpool to play the ‘proud working class city that struggled for justice’ card, this time it was at least relevant to the subject matter: The Politics of Hope. The evening focused on the struggles facing society’s poorest, the climate of political change in the Western world, and what can be done to change the current face of politics in the UK.
