Manifesto Club at the Battle of Ideas, 17 and 18 October

The Manifesto Club will be analysing contemporary threats to freedom at the Battle of Ideas on 17 and 18 October. Sessions include: ‘Statute overload: are there too many laws?‘, about the growth of criminalisation of everyday life; ‘Hot off the Press: outdoor smoking bans‘, as Brighton Council prepares to ban smoking on the beach; ‘We the People, you the Mob?‘, about the growth of censorship and censoriousness online; and on 7 October, ‘From booze bans to homeless spikes: is public space under threat?‘. Do come along!
