Whatever happened to the British centre ground?

Amidst Brexit, the rise of Jeremy Corbyn, and the collapse of the Liberal Democrats, the British political centre appears in a state of crisis. Wider echoes appear in support for Marine Le Pen in France, and AfD in Germany, and the election of Donald Trump.  But is the British middle ground more resilient than we think?  This talk explores the 'moderate' tradition in British politics, from Stanley Baldwin, through Clement Attlee to Tony Blair and David Cameron, and asks whether it has a future.

Wine and nibbles provided. All welcome.
