Visit to Parliament with Jon Cruddas

UpRising participants had the fantastic opportunity to meet Jon Cruddas MP in Parliament on 16 February 2010. UpRisers and Jon Cruddas held an informal conversation about issues relating to their borough, broader political and social happenings and Cruddas’s own career background and beliefs. Some of the topics discussed included the rise of the BNP in Barking and Dagenham, the future of the Labour party, the remote culture of parliament, party political rebellion and the ethical challenges of public life.
