A fascinating panel debate on the British General Election of 2015

To mark the publication of The British General Election of 2015, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) hosted a panel debate on the election and its consequences at the Mile End Institute on Tuesday.

Professor Philip Cowley from QMUL, one of the authors of the book, was joined by:
  • Tim Bale, Professor of Politics, QMUL (chair)
  • Matthew d'Ancona, Evening Standard columnist and chair of Bright Blue 
  • Lord (Spencer) Livermore, Director of Labour's 2015 election campaign 
  • Polly Mackenzie, former special advisor to the Deputy Prime Minister
The Liberal Democrats featured more prominently that you might expect and there were telling observations about all the parties.

This video is well worth your time.
