Nicholas Jones, author of the forthcoming Campaign 2010, features at a public discussion “The UK Election and the People’s Verdict: A Vote Against Spin?”

The general election delivered many surprises and confounded pundits. The vote resulted in the first coalition government in the UK since the Second World War. Apart from traditional media, tweeters, bloggers and social networking sites went into overdrive. We had Cleggmania, Bigot-gate and furious spinning in the media. But what did the election result say about the public’s view of media coverage? A panel of influential politicians and commentators will share their views. Chaired by Robin Lustig, BBC Presenter, Nicholas Jones together with Michael Dobbs, Lord Dholakia, Stephen Pound and Sunny Hundal offer their thoughts.

Date: Monday 7 June 2010
Venue: Commonwelath Parliamentary Association Room, Palace of Westminster
Time: 6-8.30 pm.

CAMPAIGN 2010 by Nicholas Jones is due out the end of June 2010.
