"Should trade unionists support the Labour Party?" (or SPGB)

A reminder that I am due to be debating "should trade unionists support the Labour Party?" this coming Thursday 17 November with Bill Martin from the original British "Socialist Party" (see their website screen print left). 

This will take place in Resource for London Building 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.  Come out of Hollway Underground station (Victoria Line) turn left and it is 7 minutes walk to centre which lies in between Waitrose and Weatherspoon. The centre is also by co-incidence the home of my trade union branch office.

Starting at 7.30pm and probably finishing at around 9pm.  Format will be presentations by both Bill and I on subject, followed by 5 minute rebuttal, 30 minute Q&A then 5 minute windups.

I have no idea how many people will turn up.  An online comrade from Leeds who is a Unite activist and a new Labour Party Councillor is hoping to make it as well as my latest surprise "best friend ever"!
