"Populism despises Liberalism. So how can we make Liberalism (electorally) popular and win"?
(Saturday, February 29, 2020)
|Date:||Saturday, February 29, 2020|
|Time:||10.30am - 10.30am|
he successes of the local elections in the Spring of 2019 and the election of a new young leader, led to great hopes that a General Election would Stop Brexit by bringing the Liberal Democrats many more Members of Parliament. What went wrong? Was it the tactics during and/or immediately before the election campaign or was it something longer term and more profound? How and why has the phenomenon of populism crossed the Atlantic and is a force across Europe and beyond? Or was the election a (neo-)Populist Johnson/Cummings/strategy used in the 2016 Referendum re-used to win former Liberal anti-establishment (now Brexit) voters in the West Country and former Labour (now Brexit) voters in the North? Or was it the culmination of a deeper change in British politics, where the beliefs and allegiances of voters are shifting? And why are so many drawn to support Brexit and a Right-wing Tory Government, when it appears to be so against their economic interests? Why is Liberalism, which seeks to empower people, seen by so many as their enemy? The conference will discuss these and other related topics.
