New Episode, #9: Fixing the fundamentals, but who is listening?
Week 9: London, Monday 3 December 2018.
This week on The Real Agenda, the podcast for political change
This weeks episode features Neal Lawson, chair of Compass, the pressure group that seeks to build a more equal, democratic and sustainable future www.compassonline.org.uk
Neal talks about how the EU referendum was just a release valve that had been waiting to blow, after years of pent up anger and frustration. We have not been listening to the concerns of the people; the fundamental underlying causes behind the vote have still not been addressed. As a result, he adds that those proposing a second referendum should be careful what they wish for. However he was heartened by the huge number of good ideas around that would help build a better society and remained very optimistic about the future
Compass recently produced a document on the Causes & Cures of Brexit, more info here: http://www.compassonline.org.uk/publications/the-causes-and-cures-of-brexit/
