Anthony Wedgewood Benn, formerly 2nd Viscount Stansgate (Tony Benn to you and me), is a regular fixture at the event, although this time Baroness Margaret Prosser is coming to speak. Below is the text of a leaflet that will be circulated by the West Midlands Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World questioning the role of bosses in our union movement and celebrating the actions of our fellow workers nearly a century ago.

The keynote speaker for this year’s festival is Baroness Margaret Prosser, the former deputy general secretary of the T&G Union, Labour Party treasurer, and low pay commissioner.
