Compass

In this episode we co-launch, with Policy Network, Marius Ostrowski’s new book Left Unity: Manifesto for a Progressive Alliance, with Clive Lewis, Labour MP for Norwich South, Paul Mason, writer and journalist and Molly Scott Cato, former Green MEP.

As Marius wrote in a recent blogpost for Compass, “Being on the Left means aspiring to a society built on cooperation, solidarity, and the common good. Yet when it campaigns for this society, the Left movement can be strangely reluctant to practice what it preaches.” The book outlines how progressives – from all parties and none – can better work together, overcome divisions and start to develop more comprehensive strategies to build a ‘progressive alliance’.

"It's Bloody Complicated" is recorded every Tuesday at 6pm GMT. Become a Compass Member to join our live recordings and bring your questions to our guests: https://action.compassonline.org.uk/podcast
