|Details|| ||Britain has enjoyed freedom of speech since around the year 1700, but how safe is it? And what can we do to ensure that our children and grandchildren enjoy it? The speaker, Jonathan Coulter will try to answer these questions.
Jonathan is 71 years old and retired, after a career in overseas development that involved extensive travel. His experience in recent years has made him increasingly concerned that the British news media is falling seriously short in its mission to produce a better informed public, and that this is damaging our ability to cope with multiple challenges, particularly in the international sphere.
In his talk he will examine the hacking scandal and other events of this century, and speak of his own advocacy work, revealing a state of affairs of which most British people still have very limited awareness.|
