An Afternoon with Jess Phillips MP (5+)

Join us for an insightful afternoon with Jess Phillips MP, discussing her latest book Let’s Be Honest, a funny, perceptive, and ultimately hopeful book about lying in politics.


From culture wars to clickbait, it is fair to say that politics has lost some of its integrity, and we have all suffered as a result. If it hadn’t almost wrecked the country with calamitous consequences in almost every sector of public life, it would almost be funny. But we let our standards drop – and we deserve better.

Jess Phillips believes in democracy, and the people she meets give her cause for optimism even if sometimes politicians really (really) don’t. At once a laugh-so-you-don’t-cry takedown of the state of Westminster in recent years and a rallying battle cry for bringing truth back to politics, this book will make you angry, cheer you up, and give you hope.


Jess Phillips was first elected as the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley in 2015 and was elected chair of the Women’s Parliamentary Labour Party in September 2016. Before becoming an MP, she worked with victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking, and she continues to speak up on behalf of those who struggle to have their voice heard. Jess lives with her husband and two sons in Birmingham, where she was born and raised. She has previously published three books and is a Sunday Times bestselling author.
