Delivering Brexit: a conversation

Join the UK in a Changing Europe and ConservativeHome to discuss where next for the Conservative Party on Brexit.


With weeks to go till the UK is due to leave the European Union, the UK in a Changing Europe and ConservativeHome are bringing together senior figures in the party and academic expertise to discuss the key Brexit issues: will the UK leave the EU on 31 October, and if so will it be with or without a deal? Is the Boris Johnson government more ready and willing to implement a no deal Brexit than Theresa May? And what would a general election, before or after Brexit, mean for the Conservative Party?

How does the modern Conservative Party reconnect with the tradition of social housebuilding?

With millions trapped privately renting and locked out of home ownership, is now the time to reconnect with the tradition of social housebuilding?


We know a stable home is a vital part of a successful society. And for previous generations social housing offered this, but now, for too many, social housing and homeownership are out of reach, meaning only unstable and expensive private renting is left. In the post war era, Conservatives led the way in social housing delivery, and now as much as ever the Conservative Party needs to reconnect with its social home history. Join us to discuss how this can be achieved.

But as politics continues to be dominated by Brexit, how can the parties best appeal to this group? To provoke discussion, JRF will present findings from a major research programme into what low-income voters want, how they have behaved in recent elections, as well as the first ever public mapping of their distribution across key marginal seats.
