house of parliamentThe opinion polls have narrowed and this general election now seems likely to be a closer contest than many expected. Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn are proposing two radically different visions for the future of Britain – which will prevail? And with Brexit and the possibility of Scottish independence looming, what might the next five years hold?

The panel:

Lord Willetts, executive chair of the Resolution Foundation and former Conservative minister

Kate Forbes MSP, member of the SNP’s Growth Commission

David Aaronovitch, author and commentator

Danny Dorling, Halford Mackinder professor of human geography at the University of Oxford and author of A Better Politics
