Polly Toynbee & David Walker

Sunday 15th October 13:00 - 14:00 | Northwood House

Journalists, Polly Toynbee and David Walker, argue that in recent years there has been a systematic and covert attack on the state that has turned us all against it – the government has depleted funding and resources and mounted an ideological assault on the public sector through the media. Polly Toynbee and David Walker travelled around Great Britain gathering the voices of the people who make up the state: nurses and patients, teachers and parents, policemen and civilians. The story they tell is one of society’s dismemberment across our nation state: a fragmented NHS, a reduced police force, divided schools and a vulnerable military. Chaired by Andrew Lownie.
