Last night the CSJ hosted our pre-election debate, Compassion in British Politics: who will stand for the poorest in May 2015?

It was as sane and sensible a discussion as you’re likely to hear during the course of the general election campaign. Here are a few of the highlights and observations:
One final point. Sarah Montague would have been a superb Chair for the election debates. Her ability to get to the point and push speakers, but in a way that draws out sensible discussion, was refreshing. The country would stand a better chance of making an informed choice at this election with people like her at the media helm.
