Written by

Liv47_Leaflet_webArti Dillon and The Free University of Liverpool invite you to a screening of Don't Mention the 47 Feel free to bring your friends, trade union members and community groups to this Liverpool Screening.

Don’t Mention the 47 is a political documentary that re-opens a crucial chapter in Liverpool’s history. In the years between 1983 and 1987 a group of 47 elected Labour councillors refused to transfer the cuts implemented by Margaret Thatcher’s Tory government onto the Liverpool community they represented.  Instead they built 5000 houses, created thousands of jobs and set up many vital public services. How was that possible and why did they end up being surcharged and expelled from office?

Along the way they meet dodgy ticket touts, angry yoga instructors, deranged thieves, clueless police, the suburban mafia and a dangerous Lightsaber-wielding madman. say YET because I certainly hope it is made as it looks fantastic. The Films premise is.... “Not that long ago.
