The Age of Incivility: Raising the tone of public discourse

In today’s politics, a small number of people with extreme views have a disproportionate voice, partly thanks to the megaphone of social media. Policy Exchange’s Hannah Stuart joined Nusrat Ghani MP, Resham Kotecha from Women2Win and Frances Scott of the 5050Parliament project to question how we can improve the level of public discourse without restricting freedom of expression. Nusrat and Resham shared examples of the kind of abuse they have both received from constituents and voters.
