Democracy in the UK only runs skin deep. The various crises that the UK has faced over the past few years has called into question the very functioning of how our society is governed. Does our democratic system give us the ability to be able to be governed fairly while being reactive to future crises?
This live stream will take aim at our democratic system itself, discussing how our democracy functions – and how it is funded. Featuring Peter Geoghegan, the award-winning investigative journalist from openDemocracy and author of Democracy for Sale, Neal Lawson, Director of think tank Compass, and Klina Jordan, co-Chief Executive of Make Votes Matter, the cross-party campaign to introduce proportional representation.
