Is Politics Broken?
In conversation with Alex Dean, Prospect Magazine
Monday 7th October 2019, 7-8pm
Baillie Gifford Big Tent
Former Newsnight presenter Gavin Esler joins us to examine the most momentous change in British life for decades.
Brexit Without the Bullsh*t is not about the Brexit you were told you were getting. It’s about the one that is arriving. Mixing personal anecdotes, reportage and expert reports, Gavin will discuss the impact of a no deal and reveal the damage that leaving the European Union has done, and will do, to schools, hospitals, businesses and other important areas of British life. He also will talk about untruths that certain politicians have peddled and how they have prospered by doing so.
Esler is journalist, author and TV veteran, serving as the main presenter of BBC Newsnight for 12 years until 2014. He is the Chancellor of the University of Kent and in 2019, he stood for Change UK in the European Parliament elections.
Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
