Separating fact from fiction


Directors of three of the UK’s most trusted and respected independent bodies talk about what has been promised in this election campaign, what challenges will face the new government (whatever its complexion), and where next for Brexit.

Paul Johnson of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, Bronwen Maddox of the Institute for Government and Anand Menon of UK in a Changing Europe subject the parties’ claims to desperately needed scrutiny, challenging their assumptions and setting out the real priorities for the next parliament.

No politicians, no spin, just experts and you.
