FRIDAY 9th JUNE 6pm – THE MEAKIN ROOM SORRY SOLD OUT
On the night of 7 May 2015, Ed Balls thought there was a chance he would wake up the next morning as the new Chancellor of the Exchequer. Instead, he woke up without a job. Having spent two decades occupying a central position within Labour where throughout one of the most tumultuous periods in recent British history, Ed made a point of speaking out, whatever the consequences. But on that May morning he was silenced.
Ed’s memoir Speaking Out is a record of a life in politics, the mechanics of Westminster and Government, of how power can be used for the benefit of others and the lessons that can be learned when things go wrong. It is a unique window into a rarely seen world. Most importantly, it explains the true meaning of politics and why it still matters.
