LIVE VIDEO - 'The Change We Need' debate featuring Alastair Campbell and David Lammy MP

You can watch tonight's debate live here on Next Left, where our panel asks if the Labour Party can learn lessons from Barack Obama's Presidental campaign. The event will launch a new Fabian book called 'The Change We Need: What Britain Can Learn From Obama's Victory'. It explores how tactics used to sweep Barack Obama to power could be applied to political campaigning in the UK.

It features (from left to right) Catherine Mayer from Time Magazine, Will Straw from American Progress, David Lammy MP, Alastair Campbell and Obama's online consultant Ben Barndazl.

UPDATE: Live feed was lost due to battery failure - sorry! Will post the remaining section which was filmed on a different camcorder later.
