Can a big society be a free society?

15 June 2010, 6.00pm
2 Lord North Street, Westminster, SW1 (entrance on Great Peter Street)

Power or persuasion: what's the big idea

The Free Society and the ASI present: The battle against Big Government – join the debate!

The emergence of a Conservative-Liberal coalition government might now provide the opportunity for a politics based around individual freedom and responsibility, rather than government diktat. The new Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister use the language of liberty, but will they have the guts and determination to actually put Big Government into reverse gear?

The case for freedom was often ignored by the previous administration. This series of debates is an important contribution to ensuring that the new government listens rather more closely.

The third of these debates will look at the idea of the 'big society'. Taking a root-and-branch re-think of what government is there to do for us, and how it does it.

The event will start at 6.00pm, with the debate taking place from 7.00pm to 8.00pm.

RSVP (acceptances only) to The Free Society or phone 01223 370156.

The reception is supported by Boisdale of Belgravia.
