Bittersweet Britain: What unites & what divides us?

Event type:
Location: HMS Belfast – the Thames, near City Hall, The Queens Walk, Tooley Street, London SE1 2JH

To celebrate the first birthday of British Future and the launch of our 2013 State of the Nation poll, we hosted Bittersweet Britain: What unites & what divides us? The event took place on the HMS Belfast on the Thames and featured attendees debating what the poll revealed and ask identifying what unites and divides us as a nation.

Chaired by journalist Mary Riddell, panellists included retired army officer Major General Tim Cross CBE, sports writer Mihir Bose, Dr Linda Patterson, clinical vice-president at the Royal College of Physicians, Jessica Walker, a member of the Leadership Programme at UpRising, and Matthew Oakley, head of economics and social policy at Policy Exchange.
