TRUST IN POLITICS: STV FEATURE JOHN SMITH CENTRE EVENT

We were delighted to host a webinar with Luke Tryl and Conleth Burns from More in Common on Wednesday 2 February 2022. They had a very interesting discussion with our director, Kezia Dugdale, about their report “Democratic Repair: What Britons want from their democracy.” They were able to explain their research and outline the nine recommendations they feel are needed to restore trust in politics.

After the event Kezia was a guest on STV’s “Scotland Tonight” evening current affairs programme. In an interview with Rona Dougall, Kezia explained how “Partygate” and events at Westminster are impacting on the public opinion of politicians, but argued it was key to focus on the good in politics. Watch the full interview and let us know your thoughts on how to restore faith in politcs and public life.
