Speech to the Fabian Society 8th July 2010

Last night I was pleased to be able to join the Fabian Society for their first annual gala dinner, and address their members.

The Fabian society as well as helping found the Labour party has played a big role in shaping progressive politics and the Labour party over the last 125 years.

Fabians have always been at the forefront of debate, celebrating our achievements but always asking the question 'where next' in our common pursuit of a more fair and equal society as we take forward our progressive values.
