    Lisa Nandy on a potential Labour government's approach to international development

    Lisa Nandy on a potential Labour government's approach to international development

    On this special episode of UKICE (I Tell), we have a live recording of our latest Unlocked event with Lisa Nandy MP, Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, which took place on 15 May.

    One of the few northern MPs to retain her seat as Labour’s Red Wall crumbled in 2019, she argued that the party needed to “change or die” when she stood to be leader. She has since outlined how Britain could rethink its domestic and global agenda for the modern age in her book All In. With geopolitics increasingly affecting domestic politics, her work as Shadow Minister for International Development is helping to shape Labour’s new message.

    Lisa Nandy joined Professor Anand Menon to reflect on her political career, how Britain can heal the post-Brexit divisions and how a potential Labour Government would differ from the Conservatives in its approach to international development.

    Sir John Curtice on predictions for the general election and historic election shocks

    On this special episode of UKICE (I Tell), we have a live recording of our latest Unlocked event with the “doyen of British elections”, Sir John Curtice.

    Sir John needs little introduction to followers of British politics, as one of the UK’s best-known political scientists and the man who guides the nation through election nights for the BBC. Recently he calculated that on current polling, the Labour Party have a 99% chance of forming the next government.

    With the election looming, Sir John reflects on historic election shocks such as 1992, through to the changes of government in 1997 and 2010. He also offers an insight into what it is like to crunch the numbers on polling day while the nation awaits the exit poll.

July 15th exposition

Many refreshing clarifications were made. This exposition and the follow-up questions and answers were unmistakably rooted in reality, not in the exigencies of info-tainment.
