A. C. Grayling – Ilkley Festival

18th September, 2017

Professor A.C. Grayling, author, columnist and Master and Professor of Philosophy of the New College of the Humanities, London, analyses the failure of democracy. And how to put it right. Churchill described democracy as “the least bad of all systems” but Grayling argues, in the UK and USA, it has been deliberately made to fail. Today he considers the Trump election and Brexit referendum in the light of what has happened to our democratic systems.
