Living The Dream after the UK General Election

corbche

In this episode of Living The Dream Dave (@withsobersenses) talks with Craig Gent from Novara Media. We talk about the recent UK General Election and the surprisingly good result Labour under Jeremy Corbyn received. Craig tells us about how Novara have chosen to relate to Corybn and elections, the contradictions of social democracy and what the election may or may not mean for larger anticapitalist practice.

These contradictions are represented artistically by starting the show with a sample of Corbyn reading Shelley and finishing with a classic  80s anti-parliamentary anarchist banger by Chumbawamba – representing the wide gamut of UK radicalism in verse and song ( a bit).
