Has British Politics Fundamentally Changed – Engage with Newly Elected MPs

Jul 2, 2015 · Greater London, United Kingdom

The General Election is over but how much has politics fundamentally changed as a result of it. To discuss this we are holding a meeting in the House of Commons on July 2nd at 6.30pm to discuss if there is now a sea change in British politics and whether the landscape of politics in the UK has altered fundamentally.
We have invited some newly elected MPs to attend this meeting as they will have entered the House with great enthusiasm and ideas – and it will be great to engage with them over this at this early stage in their Parliamentary life.
Kate Osamor has agreed to host this meeting and we are waiting a response from the other MPs.

Kate Osamor is now the Labour MP for Edmonton. Previous Kate was a Practice  Manager for a GP Practice in North London and is a constituency member of Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC). Her mother is Martha Osamor, who was a political activist in the 1980s.

Dr Lisa Cameron is one of the newly elected Scottish Nationalist MPs and is  an NHS Consultant working with clients who have mental health problems and learning difficulties.  She graduated from Strathclyde and Glasgow Universities and has experience in treatment, training, risk assessment and health research. Lisa grew up in the Westwood area of East Kilbride where she went to school.  Since qualifying she has served the public at Hairmyres Hospital, Wishaw General Hospital, Dykebar Hospital and the State Hospital.  She is an Expert Witness within the Scottish Court system working in cases of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence.  Lisa has been an active local Union Representative over the past twelve years, campaigning for worker’s rights, pay, pensions and issues of discrimination and equality.    
Join us in what could be an intriguing discussion with newly elected MPs and lets engage with them whilst they are still fresh and untainted by the Westminster bubble.

To respond to what the MPs say and to spark discussion around key issues also joining us will be Titus Alexander. Titus is the Convener of Democracy Matters, an informal network of over 30 organisations promoting political education. Titus has a long history working in political education and citizenship, and as a result was asked to join the Crick Centre as an Associate Fellow. He writes for many publicastions including Open Democracy and The New Statesman.
