‘Why We Can’t Afford the Rich’

The first in a series of public lectures organised by Skipton Labour Party will be held on Wednesday 30th November at 7.30pm at the Soroptimist Rooms, 28 Otley Street, Skipton BD23 1EW.

Andrew Sayer, Professor of Social Theory and Political Economy at Lancaster University, will speak on ‘Why We Can’t Afford the Rich’. Andrew has a long-standing interest in moral economy and has written several books on political economy, inequality, class, and philosophy and ethics.

The lecture series, between now and the May election, has been organised by the party to raise awareness of the social and economic impact of the past six years of the Tory government’s economic policies.

It promises to be a fascinating evening. All are welcome – bring a friend. No need to book, just turn up.

Tea and coffee will be available from 7:00pm
