Strand: The new political landscape
It’s politics, Jim, but not as we know it. This year’s UK general election did not go according to script. The ‘Brexit election’ in which Brexit hardly featured. The Tory landslide that failed to happen. Relative success for the supposed electoral liability that is Jeremy Corbyn. Are we seeing a great realignment of British politics? Or is national politics itself a thing of the past? Despite Brexit, should we see the future in multinational political formations? Some see that as the dream of the elite, while ordinary people still see themselves as citizens of a particular place. If so, which side will win out? What will happen with Brexit? This strand also includes an opportunity to ask politician and author Douglas Carswell all of the above and more.
