The next get-together of Pints of View will be in the courtyard

marquee of The Plough, Belsize, this coming Monday, 16 August, 

starting at 8pm. Bob & I hope you will be able to join us then.

The evening’s topic will be ‘How Democratic is the UK Today?’

Our informal discussion will include consideration of the relationship between government and parliament; the north-south divide; the tensions between local authorities & centralized power and the role of citizens’ assemblies.

The Constitution Unit of UCL is currently examining public attitudes to democracy in the UK today, their project began in January this year and is due to be completed by October 2022. A link to the project’s

website is attached, for your information.

Best wishes,
