That was the Coalition that was
Norman Baker, Polly Toynbee, Ann Treneman and David Walker

In 2010 the UK found itself with its first coalition government since the war. We may have agreed with Nick, but we weren’t expecting this! Henley Literary Festival has assembled a top panel to look back at the last five years and, in the midst of party conference season, look ahead.

Norman, Lib Dem MP for Lewes until he lost his seat in May, served in that government at the Home Office and tells his story in Against The Grain; Guardian commentators Polly and David published Cameron’s Coup earlier this year; and All In This Together is the coalition as told by the Times’ very funny parliamentary sketch writer, Ann Treneman. From AV to the Scottish referendum, via tuition fees and public spats – how will we fit it into an hour?
