Event Summary:

CCMR Presents 'The State We're In!' - a series of seminars on Tuesdays from Tuesday 7th October 2014 - Tuesday 25th November 2014 - 5pm - 6pm - Location: Council Chamber, Wilfred Brown Building, Brunel University - Please visit the website to book

Full Event Details:

Twenty years ago Will Hutton published his seminal work The State We’re In, which brilliantly analysed the condition of Britain, and especially its economy, at the time. It also provided a blueprint for the wholesale modernisation of the county of the country. Written towards the end of the long period of uninterrupted Tor rule, which began with Mrs Thatcher’s government in 1979, it was widely seen as providing the basis for Tony Blair’s ‘New Labour’, although in retrospect it could be argued that many of Hutton’s more radical proposals were either watered down or ignored altogether by the government which took power in 1997.

Twenty Years after the publication of Will Hutton's seminal book, this ground breaking series sees two leading thinkers come together to discuss some of the key issues facing Britain today.
