Peterloo Now: Is devolution the way to a healthier democracy? at Manchester Central Library, Manchester, 2 July 2019, from £5 - Book now
Part of Peterloo 2019 and in partnership with the University of Manchester, Manchester Histories presents a panel chaired by the Guardian’s northern editor Helen Pidd and including Professor Andy Westwood and Lisa Nandy MP, as they discuss the devolution of government and its impact on the future of our democracy.
In 2018, Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham said, “Devolution is not just a series of technical changes to the machinery of government. It has had a profoundly positive effect on the culture of our city-region. It has created a new energy; a sense of possibility; a shaft of light in an otherwise gloomy political sense.”
