Britain’s angriest election?

In partnership with British Future, we invite you to an event to discuss the tone and conduct of this election amidst an unsettled and polarised debate about Brexit and to ask – does this risk being Britain’s angriest election yet?

Is this election a threat to our foundational democratic norms and social cohesion – or is this risk being exaggerated? What expectations do we have of politicians and political parties to engage in robust but civil debate?

Who will shape the tone of the political discourse? How far do public voices outside party politics – the media, civic society and voters – have a role to play? And beyond this election, how can divisions be bridged and healed after the votes are counted?

Join us as we answer these questions and more.

Speakers are:

  • Mike Graham, TalkRADIO
  • Professor Maria Sobolewska, University of Manchester
  • Sunder Katwala, British Future
  • Professor Tim Bale, UK in a Changing Europe

Venue: North Terrace, 8th Floor, Bush House, 30 Aldwych, London, WC2B 4BG

Doors open at 6.30pm, for a 7pm start.
