I will be speaking on ‘Are political parties bankrupt? The economic emergency and the next election’. at the Orwell debate on Wednesday
To celebrate the announcement of our shortlists on 25th March, we will be holding a debate entitled ‘Are political parties bankrupt? The economic emergency and the next election’. What effect will the economic crisis have on party policy? What solutions are Labour, the Tories and the Lib Dems putting forward? Do our political parties even have a solution?
Panellists will be Nick Cohen (shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2008 for What’s Left?, author of new book Waiting for the Etonians), David Davis MP (Conservative, Haltemprice and Howden), Frank Field MP (Labour, Birkenhead) and Douglas Murray (author and commentator). Sean Maguire, Reuters’ Editor of Political and General News, will be chairing, and we’ll be confirming more speakers over the next few days.
The debate will be taking place at Reuters, Canary Wharf, London, 6.30pm for 7pm start. If you’d like to reserve a place, RSVP is essential. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
