In Conversation: Ken Clarke MP

This event has finished Took place on: Monday, 31st Oct 2016

The Mile End Institute's new series of events brings senior figures from across the political spectrum to Queen Mary University of London for an in-depth exploration of their politics. 

In conversation with Professor Philip Cowley of QMUL’s School of Politics and International Relations, we will ask what motivates our political leaders, how they come to make difficult decisions, and what it takes to win.

Former chancellor Ken Clarke has called the vote for Brexit a ‘disaster’ and the referendum campaign ‘nasty’. 

We’ll be asking the veteran Europhile Conservative why the Remain campaign failed, what he thinks supporters of EU membership should do next, and how the Conservative Party will develop under the leadership of - in his words - 'a bloody difficult woman'.
The event will be followed by a drinks reception to which all are welcome.

Cost: Free of Charge
