Left Foot Forward’s Progressive PBR Live 2009

Join us from 12 noon on Wednesday 9th December for our live coverage of Alistair Darling’s Pre-Budget Report. We’ll be hosting a discussion on the key points as they’re announced, with guest commentators from across the progressive economic community, including the TUC’s ToUChstone blog team, Rachel Reeves, and Howard Reed.

You’ll be able to have your say directly on the issues, by adding comments to the live event hosted here on our site, or by contributing via Twitter. Address your tweets to @leftfootfwd – we’ll be looking out for your contributions to bring into the live debate.

Leave your email address here if you’d like a reminder for the live event (we’ll not be using email addresses for any purpose other than to send the reminder).

As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.

We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.

  3. New Reform report should be welcomed by progressives | Left Foot Forward

    […] And of course if you can’t close the deficit through painless invisible cuts and economic growth alone, then the only route left is tax. Labour has developed some confidence in this area, and we will see whether it goes any further in tomorrow’s PBR. […]
