Isabel Hardman - FOI at Waterstones

Wednesday 28th November 19:00 at Bristol - Galleries

Politicians are consistently voted the least-trusted professional group by the UK public. In recent years, there have been scandals concerning sexual harassment and expenses. Every year, they introduce new legislation that fails to achieve what it set out to do – often with terrible financial and human costs.
But, with some notable exceptions, they are decent, hard-working people, doing a hugely demanding job. In a searching examination of our political class, award-winning journalist Isabel Hardman tries to square this circle and explores what we can do to change the system for the better. Discussing her ground-breaking research and interviews from across the political spectrum – from researchers to prime ministers – she lifts the lid on the strange world of Westminster, showing how the culture and institutions of parliament fail both the electorate and the MPs themselves.


This is an event in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.
