Who Are The Milibands?

Details of the next Disussion Meeting of the Dronfield Labour Party are given below. These meetings are open to members of the Labour Party and to members of the Dronfield Contact Club. They are open to others by invitation.


SPEAKER............John Halstead

TOPIC..................Who are the Milibands?

TIME....................8 pm to 9.15 pm

DATE...................Sunday, 13th June 2010

VENUE.................Contact Club, Snape Hill Lane, Dronfield



This meeting provides an opportunity to discuss the Labour leadership issue and the current direction of Labour politics.

The Miliband brothers, David and Ed appear to be the two front-runners in the Labour Party leadership contest. Their late father, Ralph Miliband was a leading Marxist intellectual at the London School of Economics (LSE), before moving to the University of Leeds. Ralph said his sons provided 'stringent criticisms' of his views. How might the views of his two sons relate to those of their father?

The discussion will be introduced by John Halstead who studied at the LSE under Ralph Miliband's personal supervision. John formerly taught adult students (workers in the mines and steel works, on the railways and in public services) at the University of Sheffield. He has been prominent for many years in the work of the Society for the Study of Labour History.
