Festival convenors Alastair Donald and Ella Whelan explain why the Battle of Ideas, which starts tomorrow, is so important. If you haven’t got a ticket, there’s still time.
I slightly worry about two things regarding the BOI.
1. It is becoming a cozy club
2. It thinks we are post culture wars.
We are not post culture wars. The FSU still deals with the trans issue as much as ever. There are more captured organisations. The same universities top the rank for wokeness. In other words the issues are live and not behind us.
