Today I spent most of the day in Malmsebury, a market town in the Southern Cotswolds in the county of Wiltshire.
It’s a wonderful and very pretty town with the central draw being its famous Abbey.
Malmesbury is also the HQ for Dyson, the founder of which James Dyson is a well-known Brexiteer.
I was there in the Town hall with about 50 other people to attend a conference discussing a wide ranging set of topics that many believe will become the next big political topic after Brexit.
These range around four main subject areas: proportional representation, free speech, an English Parliament and reform of the House of Lords. The ten speakers gave good account of themselves, some of which I agreed with some not but that is what these events are all about.
The speeches were filmed separately and I will link to them in the description box below once they are available on YouTube.
After the meeting I managed to catch up with a couple of the speakers.
The first of these was Klina Jordan of Make Votes Matter (https://www.makevotesmatter.org.uk).
The second speaker I talked to was Colin Bex of the Wessex regionalists, who believes in an autonomous region fro the South and South West of England.
