At 6.30pm tonight there is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime cross-party ‘in conversation’ to reflect on an unprecedented decade. The event is taking place in London at The Magic Circle Theatre, 12 Stephenson Way, NW1 2HD. However it will also be Live stream but apparently it is not suitable for broadcast so it will be available to journalists who cannot attend but wish to watch. The arrangement is as follows:

The five people taking part are Michael Heseltine, Vince Cable, Andrew Adonis, Caroline Lucas and Anna Bird. The image shown here is from a debate that Caroline took place in the University of Sussex a number of years ago. She is my MP and I am delighted that she is one of the five speakers. The information I have seen included.
As Britain’s shortest-serving Prime Minister resigns and another brand-new government takes its place, the United Kingdom has had a decade like no other. The country has tackled dramatic economic turmoil, navigated a devastating pandemic, responded to war, begun to face the climate emergency and the reality of life outside of the European Union. And all of this whilst experiencing its first peacetime coalition government, holding three historic referendums, crashing out of the European Union, working its way through five Conservative Prime Ministers, three Labour leaders, five Lib Dem leaders and losing its longest-reigning monarch.
Exploring everything from Brexit to human rights, the economy to climate change, the progress we’ve made and the challenges we must still overcome, delve into the lives and careers of these four extraordinary public figures in what promises to be one of the most exciting political events of the year.
This will be the first and only time these four figures will be on stage together.
