We look forward to our annual debate with Lord Glasman at the house of Lords.  Book early as numbers are extremely limited.  It will be in one of the Committee rooms that we see on the TV where bank and latterly construction leaders are routinely grilled alive in the national interest.


Maurice is a great friend of the TMA UK, having spoken many times for us.  He was the only labour Peer to break ranks and vote for Brexit and is the Patron of Change Britain.  He is writing a book with the Chief Economist of the Bank of England, Andy Haldane, on a Post Brexit economic model of Britain that treasures the deployment of local capital through regional institutions, advocates a stronger emphasis on skills based training locally for local communities and discusses the imbalances inherent in centralised command and control economies.


Maurice is the founder of The Common Good Foundation that is dedicating resources to building a society in Britain that is less polarised and that treasures values such as respect, responsibility and reciprocity.  One of its mantras is that people should be able to work for their own self-interest, broadly conceived, but for the common good of their communities.  Is this something that can be achieved as a post Brexit ambition?
