Speaker information

Joe Twyman, Head of Political and Social Research at Britain’s leading pollsters YouGov will discuss what the data is showing and what it all might mean for both the European Elections in 2014 and also the General Election in 2015.

Even before the debates between Nigel Farage and Nick Clegg, many were describing the upcoming European Parliamentary Elections as a potentially fascinating moment in British politics.

With UKIP on the march, the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats will all be hoping to limit the damage come May, but what does the future hold?

A light lunch will be provided at 12.30pm in the Common Room.
