Talking Heads


With speaker  Professor Jeffrey Henderson  (Professor Emeritus of International Development at the University of Bristol)

How has it taken us three years to get to this point and what underlying ideology has motivated our politicians to lead us to this point in history? Whatever position we are in by the time of this talk in July, this session will attempt to unpick how we got here and what might lie ahead for us as a nation and as individuals and communities within that nation. It should be interesting and lively!
