We welcome back a Festival favourite – the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley and one of the most refreshing voices in modern politics. In the midst of one of the most combative and confusing periods in UK Parliamentary history, she has spoken out about issues that should concern us all, from social media trolling to the safety of politicians, whistle-blowing and battling for an open discussion about pressing issues what impact on us all – subjects that she covers in her powerful new book: an inspiration to those who want to speak out when many feel the world isn’t listening, and an important message whatever the colour of your politics.
'There's nobody else at Westminster quite like Jess Phillips. She is fearless and funny, riotous and rebellious, maverick and mischievous.' The Times
