In an annual event unique to Borders Book Festival, Jim reviews the political year that’s gone and muses on the one to come. 2024 will be the year of elections – in Britain, the USA, India and elsewhere. Using all of his rich experience and speaking fluently, without a note, Jim peers into the future. Will Putin win in Ukraine? What will unfold in the Middle East? He understands the plumbing of our political system like no one else and can examine trends with a withering, objective eye. These sessions are memorable, magisterial, powerful and perceptive. And unmissable.
