After the Apocalypse? A Bonfire Night special
We asked a group of experts - academics, commentators, politicians - to give us their view. The question we posed was what can we do to stop a catastrophe like this being repeated? The result is fascinating, and as you would expect the answers have varied widely - not all, for example, believe that a repeat can be avoided.
The collection will be launched with an event at Demos next Wednesday evening - the 5th. It will be hosted by Phil Collins, Chair of Demos Trustees, with Vince Cable, Peter Hahn and several other of our essayists.
