Since the UK unexpectedly gained a new Prime Minister in July, unsurprisingly most of the focus has been on what Brexit deal we’re likely to get. Theresa May has been keeping her cards close to her chest, but what do we know about her policy priorities so far? What can we expect from the Brexit deal? What else will May be looking to achieve over the next four years?
‘THE POLICY FACTOR!’ is a talent show-style policy debate that makes the most of audio-visual tools to engage with politicians, policy experts, commentators and audiences both within and beyond the fringe. Each interactive event will explore a positive policy idea for the next Parliament, in the style of an ‘audition’. Responding to the proposal, a ‘judging panel’ will be comprised of individuals representing a variety of views, for example the party, the press, or the people.
The big idea? To find new talent to challenge ‘politics-as-usual’.
