The year 2016 has been the most turbulent in living memory with the established order taking a beating. It has given us Brexit and Donald Trump, politicians falling (and refusing to fall) on their swords, and a wave of terror attacks across Europe. The backdrop has been one of unease and anger. What lessons might history offer and what might the future hold? Our panel includes Peter Oborne, associate editor of The Spectator and author of Not the Chilcot Report and Iain Macwhirter, chief political commentator of The Herald and the Sunday Herald; Claire Fox is the director of the Institute of Ideas and author of 'I Find That Offensive!'.
