New Event: Election Special

Posted on

Just when you thought it was safe to turn the news back on, here comes another election. But who should you vote for? Which party is best for you and your family? Whose policies should you be voting for? Find out on 30th May at Politics in the Pub’s election special.

For an election special, we’ve got a special format. We’ve invited a representative from each of the five main parties in Bradford: Labour, Conservatives, LibDems, Greens and UKIP. Using a Question Time style, we’ll be asking them your questions, allowing them discuss the topics which are most important to Bradfordians this election. You can propose questions on our Facebook page, and we’ll also send attendees an email a few days before asking for questions; if your question is picked, we’ll let you know a day or two before.

Our Panel:

We’ll update you on panellists this weekend and send an email to all attendees once we have biographies for all the panelists.

Get past the spin and beyond the scare stories; come and meet those in the know and find out which party really represents you.

New Poll: What’s up next, Bradford?

Posted on Updated on

The ballots have been cast and the votes are in… but there’s always another vote round the corner.

After our first poll, elected mayors and devolution came out top. We’re busy behind the scenes organising some great speakers to come and speak to you!

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 13.18.09Watch this space for updates but, as a little taster, we’ll be confirming our August debate soon… with Philip Davies, Shipley’s MP known for speaking his mind not toeing the party line, and Gerry Sutcliffe, former Bradford South MP who’s said he’d love to be West Yorkshire’s first elected mayor, debating the mayoral issue.

And don’t forget that it’s our first event this month: 25th June at Bradford Brewery where Cllr Debbie Davies, former MP David Ward and Baroness Glenys Thornton will do battle against our co-founder and skeptic Will Robinson to debate – What’s the point in voting?. Get your free ticket here.

But, for now, content yourself with voting in our latest poll. What do you want to hear discussed, debated and dissected in Bradford’s burgeoning Independent Quarter?

No matter what they say at our first event, this vote matters!
