Lord Gus O’Donnell, former Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service (and Visiting Professor at SPP) is teaming up with David Cowling, BBC’s Editor of Political Research, to forecast the UK’s 2015 election results, and the process of government formation thereafter. David Cowling will explain why the 2015 election is so difficult to predict: why are the main parties underperforming so close to the election? And why is 2015 likely to be the angry election? Gus O’Donnell will then discuss the complications of another hung Parliament, the constitutional implications, the role of the civil servants involved in the process of government formation, and what they can and cannot do.
