MATT FORDE will welcome Labour MP DAVID LAMMY as his guest at the Political Party on Wednesday 25th March.
DAVID LAMMY MP is one of the bookies’ favourites to be the next Mayor of London and has a unique perspective on the future of Labour and the country, having witnessed the effect of some of society’s most destructive forces. This is a great opportunity to hear directly from a politician who is poised to become one of Britain’s most powerful politicians either as London Mayor or in a potential future Labour government.
