POLLY TOYNBEE and DAVID WALKER

Share:

“DISMEMBERED: HOW THE ATTACK ON THE STATE HARMS US ALL”


“Polly Toynbee was terrific. Sharp as steel......... and serious, provocative, and considered. Then she took off big time with the questions and answers. The spontaneity of this second part was really exciting” South Coast Theatre Manager.

Coming from a long line of intellectuals, historians, and literary critics, Polly Toynbee won a scholarship to study History at Oxford. Her first job was at the Guardian where she has worked for many years slowly building a reputation for accurate fact finding left of centre journalism.

With her partner Journalist David Walker she wrote two books critically assessing the successes and failures of the Blair New Labour government ….… “LIFE IN LOW PAY BRITAIN” 2003
And THE VERDICT: DID LABOUR CHANGE BRITAIN? (2010)
Combining meticulous research with revealing the experiences of ordinary folk.

And then “DOGMA AND DISARRAY” (2012) reporting on the Tories first two years in government.

And now she and fellow author DAVID WALKER discuss the slow but steady dis-memberment of the Welfare State as the cuts continue to bite, together with other pressing problems such as Brexit and Trump.


*Please note: the event will last for 90mins with no interval and a 20min book signing will follow.
