Coming up at Onward

brick in the wall 2 - Another Brick in the Wall - Event Invitation

Good afternoon,  

I am delighted to invite you to a virtual event discussing Another Brick in the Wall, a major new paper from Onward on where the electoral battlegrounds will be at the next General Election. The event will be streamed live on Monday, 28th February at 10.30 am to 11.30 am. 

We will be joined by James Kanagasooriam, CEO at Stack Data Strategy, Rachel Wolf, Founding Partner at Public First and co-author of the 2019 Conservative Manifesto, Sebastian Payne, Whitehall Editor at the Financial Times and author of Broken Heartlands, and James Blagden, Head of Future Politics at Onward. We will discuss key questions, including:

Was the Conservatives’ regional pivot in 2019 the beginning of the end of the electoral rotation? Has it gone too far, exposing the Conservatives’ Southern flank? Could a doubling down on levelling up the economies of the North and Midlands inadvertently lead to a levelling down of Conservative seat tallies in the South? Is the “Blue Wall” a useful concept, insofar as the “Red Wall” was before 2019?


Date: Monday, 28th February 2022

Time: 10.30am – 11.30am
