This event has now taken place.

Two visions of Europe, one hopeful, one pessimistic. Journalist Douglas Murray argues in The Strange Death of Europe, Europe is caught in the act of suicide. His eyewitness accounts from across the continent explore this fatal prognosis, from migration to multi-culturism. Rod Liddle in the Sunday Times said: “That Murray will be vilified for it by the liberals who have created the appalling mess he describes does not make it any less brilliant and important … Read it.”

Mick Hume is a passionate advocate of democracy and free speech. He had a weekly column in The Times for ten years, and was described as ‘Britain’s only libertarian Marxist newspaper columnist’. Of Revolting! How the Establishment Are Undermining Democracy and What They’re Afraid Of, Salman Rushdie raved: “This is an important book, and couldn’t be more timely. It’s strong-minded, unafraid, determined to knock down all the various specious arguments against free speech … and terrifically well argued.”

Get ready for a heated debate at this critical time in the history of Europe. Murray and Hume will be interviewed by Colin Philpott, writer, presenter and media consultant.
