'Populism vs the Real Class Struggle' (Manchester, 26/5)

'Populism vs the Real Class Struggle' 

Saturday, 26 May - 2:00pm

Venue: Friends Meeting House, 
6 Mount Street, 
Manchester, M2 5NS

Populism makes a distinction between 'the people' and 'the elite'. This talk will raise the question of how valid this is, by focusing on how these concepts of people and elite are defined by populists. 
Does it correspond to the division in society between the capitalist class and the working class? And do populists propose to put an end to this distinction? Their views will be contrasted with the Socialist Party's goal of a class-free society.
