What's the talk about?
2016 was a year of political upheaval, not least in the UK and America. A common concern on both sides of the pond was the apparent relegation of fact and rational discourse in favour of an appeal to emotion, shrill voices and the embrace of dubious and erroneous facts. Julian Huppert, LibDem MP for Cambridge 2010-2015 joins us to share his views. Was it really like this or not? Was it worse than ever? What’s the future prospect for rational debate in parliament and civil society?
This will be Julian’s second visit to Skeptics in the Pub. It’s sure to be a stimulating evening of discussion and debate.
