Battle of Ideas conference 2016
22 October 2016 | the Barbican
Many were shocked by the outcome of Britain’s EU referendum. Remain voters said they no longer recognised their country. Leave voters retorted that now metropolitan liberals knew how the rest of the country has been feeling for years. Is Britain split down the middle? Are there now North-South, old-young, metropolitan-rural, educated-uneducated divides that can’t be surmounted?
Filmed at the Battle of Ideas, the speakers are Richard Angell, director of Progress; Dr Munira Mirza, advisor on arts and philanthropy, Leave campaigner; Max Wind-Cowie, deputy director of ResPublica; David Lammy MP, Labour MP for Tottenham; Mick Hume, editor-at-large, spiked. The chair is Alan Miller, chairman, Night Time Industries Association (NTIA).
