Will Hutton – This Time No Mistakes

Tickets £11/£9



Every thinking person knows that a great change is needed in our country. Will Hutton analyses how the left and right have gone wrong over the course of the last century. He believes the nation’s continuing inability to invest in itself is at the heart of our problems, which have their roots in the Victorian dream of laissez-faire. To ward off the wave of nihilist populism sweeping the world, we need an alternative economic and political philosophy. Hutton shows how two great traditions, ethical socialism and progressive liberalism, can be brought together to offer a different way forward and help shape a better Britain.

Chaired by Richard Moss



‘Passionately argued, full of facts and insight, Will Hutton brilliantly diagnoses the British Disease of the 2020s and offers a convincing cure. A must read for anyone who thinks the UK can be better and do better than the mess we are in.’ – Gavin Esler, author of Britain Is Better Than This
