After a sold-out event at this year’s Borders Book Festival the McInroy & Wood Lecture with Robert Peston is now available for you to watch and/or listen to. We are grateful for the support from Tim Wood and his team.
ITV’s political editor and presenter of Peston on Sunday, Robert Peston, talks about the mess facing liberal democracy and what can be done to mend the terrible fractures in our society. He looks at what must happen to prevent democracy being subverted by technocratic geniuses with the ability to manipulate social media, what can be done to staunch the widening gap between rich and poor and how to raise living standards for all. Based on his book WTF, this lecture is personal, angry and funny. You can listen to the whole lecture as podcast on iTunes here.
