Two elections on opposite sides of the world have seen a remarkable lift in Labour's fortunes. Mike Smith has recently been in England and attended the Labour Party Conference at Brighton, met a number of MPs and officials, and returned in time to see the formation of the sixth Labour-led government in New Zealand. He will compare and contrast the campaigns, and discuss prospects and opportunities for left parties. Mike Smith is a former General Secretary of the NZ Labour Party. He has had extensive contacts with UK Labour as well as sister parties in Australia and Canada.
