What will the consequences of Brexit be for the capital? In this London Society debate, organised in association with the OnLondon website, we aim to generate light rather than heat on the most significant issue facing London for a generation. Speakers will include Labour peer and former government minister Lord Adonis, London Assembly member and former Lib Dem candidate for the Mayoralty Caroline Pidgeon MBE and senior London Conservative Daniel Moylan.

This topical issue will be debated with Tom Rubens – an advocate of a mainly socialist economy – battling for the motion, and Tim Bale – a high profile Professor of Politics – arguing against it.

Bankers are a force for good

DEBATE: Jonathan Parker v Paul Carroll.

This is a hot topic and Jonathan Parker will argue that today’s large banks are a force for good, without them our quality of life would be dramatically diminished. Excessive bonuses are a bone of public contention but these are not a fault of the individual banker but of the embedded culture inherent to the capitalist system, to which mankind owes a huge debt. The motion will be opposed by Paul Carroll.

London Thinks - The Rise of UKIP

The Rise of UKIP: Where did it come from, and how far can it go in the general election? With just weeks to go until arguably the most unpredictable General Election in a generation, London Thinks invites you to a discussion in which we try to understand the UK Independence Party. We will be discussing the party’s origins, who its supporters are and just why its message has been so effective. Will the “UKIP earthquake” continue on to the general election, and what could that mean for the future of British politics?
