Are our political parties capable of reflecting our values in an age where ‘open’ and ‘closed’ have replaced ‘left’ and ‘right’? Is there a point to Labour and the Tories when the social classes they were supposed to represent have ceased to exist? And why aren’t MPs more daring about setting up new political parties, even as their own ones disintegrate?
Evidently we live in very interesting times and in this talk ace scrutiniser of the political scene Ian Dunt, takes a very timely look at how Westminster parties became such damaged goods and if they’ll ever be able to repair themselves.
Ian Dunt is the editor of Politics.co.uk and the political editor of the Erotic Review. He writes for a variety of magazines and websites, including the Times and the Guardian, and appears regularly on TV and radio. His book, Brexit:What the Hell Happens Now?, is out now from Canbury press.
