As Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence and Safeguarding and prominent member of Labour’s front bench, Jess Phillips is no stranger to the ins and outs of Westminster politics. From agonising decisions on foreign airstrikes and making headlines about orgasms, to sitting in on history-making moments at the UN and eating McCain potato smiles at a black-tie banquet in China — her life as a politician is certainly never dull. But politics is far bigger than the daily noise of Whitehall. It’s not just about principles, it’s about people’s lives.
With her trademark humour and honesty, Jess Phillips lifts the lid on what a career in politics is really like, why it matters and why we all need to be a part of it. Join us for a ThinkIn that gets behind the smoke and mirrors of today’s political scene.
