Tim Newark
Protest Vote: How Politicians Lost the Plot
County Buildings, Main Hall
Thursday 2nd October 2014

Historian and journalist Tim Newark discusses his entertaining new book, an exploration of the mavericks – from Boris Johnson and Nadine Dorries, to Sara Parkin and Nigel Farage – who have sprung up in response to a public disillusioned with the political status quo. A warts-and-all account of backstabbing and opportunism among our ruling classes, it also asks: how did we reach this moment? In conversation with BBC special correspondent Allan Little.
