Claire Ainsley: The New Working Class

May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The majority of people in the UK still identify as working class, yet no political party today can confidently articulate their interests. So who is now working class and how do political parties gain their support?


Based on the opinions and voices of lower and middle-income voters, this insightful book, by JRF’s Executive Director and York resident Claire Ainsley, proposes what needs to be done to address the issues of the ‘new working class’. It provides practical recommendations for political parties to reconnect with the electorate and regain trust.


The evening will consist of a short introduction to the book and a discussion on how can political parties connect with voters of the new working class and gain their support.


A complimentary drinks receptions will begin at 6pm in the Marriott Room, and the main event will start at 6.30pm
