95. SEVEN MYTHS THAT CHANGED A COUNTRY - AND HOW TO SET THEM STRAIGHT
Marc Stears, Tom Baldwin
Saturday 29th June 10:00 (60 Min)
Evelyn Partners Spiegeltent
Years of political turmoil and culture wars have left people asking, what is England and what is its future? Often the answers offered are rooted not in real lives, but in inflated myths. Some talk of restoring an English birth-right of liberty, or the global confidence to rule the waves. Others yearn for the old-fashioned morality with which, they claim, England once civilised a savage world. Still others look inwards to a story of an enchanted island that can stand alone against a hostile world. Tom Baldwin, bestselling biographer of Keir Starmer, and Marc Stears, influential think tank head, unravel seven myths that have distorted ideas of this country and provided ammunition for charlatans or culture warriors from both left and right.
