Election LIVE! at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas

The ELECTION podcast team returned at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas last Saturday, October 24th for ELECTION Live!, a one-off live recording of the podcast. Professor David Runciman was joined by regular panellists Dr Helen Thompson, Dr Chris Brooke, Dr Finbarr Livesey and special guest, former MP Charles Clarke, now a Visiting Professor at UEA. The panel discussed events since the UK election, upcoming events such as the US Primaries and the EU Referendum, as well as taking questions from the audience.
