Tonight – Tuesday 16 October – Mick Fealty hosts the first National Conversation Moot at 7.00pm.
A Moot is a kind of Web-enabled video conference, allowing people to meet for a face-to-face conversation. Tonight Mick will be trying to get under the skin of the question: is the welfare state still fit for purpose?
Contributors for tonight’s Moot include John Lloyd (contributing editor, Financial Times and co-founder of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford) Dr John Bew (currently working on a biography of Clement Attlee) and Margot James MP.
The Moot is hosted on Google Hangouts. It’s easy to take part if you have a Gmail or Google Plus account. Sign up now – or find out more on the event page.
You can also comment on the Moot after the event on the National Conversation YouTube page.
