Politics, Lobbyists & Corruption: Uni Democracy Event

One way or pricking up the ears The Chronic is to start your press release by declaring:

“Tamasin Cave from Spinwatch will speak about corrupt relationships within UK politics and how lobbying more generally corrupts democracy.”

GOSH.

This is part of the THINK programme – a series of public lectures that take place at the University of Essex.

If you want to find out more about corrupt democracy then the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall on Tuesday 14th November at 2pm is the place to be.

Disclaimer: the corrupt relationships between lobbyists and politics will *probably* be looking at the national picture.

We aren’t expecting Tamasin to talk about some of the lobbying that has taken place in Sunny Colch around the bloody Garden Villages.

Nope.

Phew. Glad we’ve got that one cleared up, Comrades.

Also on the agenda we have:

“Rachel Davies from Transparency International UK will consider corruption within the UK’s prison sector, local government and housing. She will also examine the UK’s role when it comes to facilitating corruption globally.”

The event on Wednesday is FREE.

Members of the public are welcome to attend.

A toast to democracy. The prison guard of this society, etc.
