Podcast Ep 7 – how to seek Remain – with Mike Buckley


Richard’s guest in the latest episode of his podcast ‘Making the world better’ is Mike Buckley. Mike is a political campaigner who has been seeking social and political change for many years, most recently as head of the ‘Labour for a public vote’ campaign.

Richard got to know Mike after ChangeStar’s social change consultancy offshoot Praxis had prepared a report in 2019 to set out the strategy the Remain campaign needed to take if there were a second referendum on Brexit. In the end of course this report wasn’t needed!

The conversation took place at a very interesting point in time, when the Labour party was recovering from a massive election defeat to the Conservatives, and as a consequence Brexit was going to happen. Mike was taking stock of what had gone well and what hadn’t in the campaign, and gave some very honest and passionate answers.
