Brilliant. Labour is willing to listen to the wisdom of the nation and build an economic policy that is based on our combined knowledge.

Meanwhile, the Tories have their heads up their own posteriors and are wondering why it is getting dark.

This Writer would like to go to one of these seminars. Wouldn’t you?

Free economics seminars for the public will be held by Labour across the UK in an attempt to break away from “Westminster-dominated views” about public finances.

John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, is launching the “New Economics” events in a bid to get members of the public talking about economic ideas in the hope they will inform Labour policy.

The events will include seminars and expert panels, including members
of Labour’s economic advisory group, such as Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, and leading economists Mariana Mazzucato and Ha-Joon Chang.

Topics up for debate include inequality, technology and work, and the strategic state before a national conference on economics is held by McDonnell in May.
