"All issues are political issues and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia." (George Orwell, 1946)

What is new about today's political landscape? As Trump settles into the White House and Britain prepares to exit from Europe, the lecture will examine whether there has been a fundamental change in electors and the elected and what the outcome might be.

The lecture will start at 5.30pm, followed by a Q&A session with Lady Wheatcroft and then a drinks reception.

The annual Antcliffe Lecture was established following a donation in the name of John Antcliffe, who studied History at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, before going on to become a respected public relations professional.
