Policy Exchange hosted Professor Richard Tuck, one of the world’s leading historians of ideas, to set out the case for Brexit as the best opportunity for the Left to bring about pure socialism. Labour MP Caroline Flint delivered the vote of thanks, in which she cautioned her colleagues that “We cannot spend the next 18 months voting down every one of the Tories’ EU Bills. If we do so, we will look like liars” in remarks covered by the Express, the Sun and Total Politics.
The Sun credited Policy Exchange’s agenda setting work on the ‘Just About Managing’ classes, saying: “Think tank Policy Exchange describe them as “people who just manage to get by each month but whose resilience to economic shocks is not high”.”

The Spectator’s Isabel Hardman covers Policy Exchange’s event with John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons. The Speaker set out his thoughts on how PMQs could be improved (beyond better behaviour from MPs), including a longer session and a mix of open and substantive questions from MPs.
