Unlock Democracy Leicestershire Public Meeting: "Politicians: Only in it for themselves!" Just cynicism? Or do we need Change? (General)

Every year we hear new stories about politicians cheating the system, claiming expenses, selling influence... it makes people ask, are these politicians just in it for themselves?

But perhaps we're being cynical... perhaps the misbehaviour is committed by a minority within a largely hardworking profession? Some local MPs have agreed to discuss this issue with the public.

Unlock Democracy will be hosting a public meeting, featuring:

" Andrew Bridgen MP
" Professor Steven Fielding
" Roger Helmer MEP
" Dr Ken Ritchie

Chaired by Alexandra Runswick from Unlock Democracy

Our guests will have their say... Then you will have yours!

Come to take part in the discussion!
We'll even provide tea and biscuits! :)

Unfortunately Jon Ashworth MP is unable to attend the meeting, as he has to vote in Parliament today. However, we are excited to announce that Ken Ritchie (former Chief Exec of the Electoral Reform Society) will be joining the panel tonight!

Host: Lisa French
