Britain’s Angriest Election?

Event type:
Date: 21/11/2021
Location: Bush House, King's College London













The 2019 General Election is an unusual election, called amidst an unsettled and polarised debate about Brexit – and what happens next.


British Future and UK in a Changing Europe invite you to attend a joint event focussing on the tone of this election and what it might mean for our politics. We will ask – does this risk being Britain’s angriest election yet?

This will be an opportunity to discuss answer some of the more worrying questions surrounding the lead up to December 12th. Questions such as:

Is this election a threat to our foundational democratic norms or social relations – or is this risk being exaggerated?

What expectations do we have of politicians and political parties to engage in robust but civil debate? Or are the incentives for them to do so weakening?

Who will shape the tone of the political discourse? How far do public voices outside party politics – the media, civic society and voters – have a role to play? And during and beyond this election, will the flames calm after the nation goes to ballot box once again?
