A household name and a well-known voice that has illuminated British and Scottish politics with his brilliant insights, Sir John comes to Melrose to look back on the remarkable shifts of the last twenty years. Polling plus surveys of political and social attitudes make up a formidable armoury of research. Dispassionate and objective, Sir John offers a uniquely well-informed analysis of trends. Ever-present at general elections, he accurately predicted the results in 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2017. Can he offer thoughts as to the future direction of our politics? In an event unique to the Borders Book Festival, we will find out.
