Sheffield – What do we want from a democratic system?

Thurs, 6th June 2024 , categories: Democracy, Meetings, Sheffield

Who represents us and in what capacity; what is the nature of the democratic deficit; what system of elections and parliament would be more democratic?

Since we last met you’ve probably noticed a general election has been called. It would seem other than sparring around what might be good for teenagers (the vote at 16 or national service) and Ed Davey falling into Lake Windermere (isn’t it polluted enough already?), it been a bit lack lustre – or maybe you disagree!  Is the real battle after the election dust has settled for the hearts and minds of a shattered right and a disillusioned left?

You are warmly invited to join us at The Red Lion, 109 Charles St, Sheffield, S1 2ND, for our next meeting on Thursday 6th June 2024 at 7:00-9:00pm. See here for location.

We are growing!

We are expanding our activities via regional Politics in Pubs groups and have created a map where you can search for a group near you. If you live near Salisbury or Northampton we have members who wants to start new groups in those towns, so please let us know if this of interest.

Don’t worry if you can’t find anything nearby as you can start your own group. If you would like to be put in touch with other people interested in talking about politics, please reply to this email letting us know your location and we’ll help to get the conversation started.

We have also started to grow our network with other free speech groups who have a similar interest in open discussion and debate. If you have such a group and want to appear on our map please get in touch.
