Wednesday Night Fightback 7: Persuasion not coercion

Have politicians lost the art of political persuasion?

By: Editor

In our seventh Wednesday Night Fightback, Michael Taylor and William Clouston discuss the growing tendency for politicians to use coercion rather than persuasion.

Where once political persuasion and argument might have been considered, Britain’s political class now talk only in the language of fines and bans. This erodes the mutual trust necessary for a happy and successful society.

William and Michael ask whether this approach can ever be justified.

Due to the Easter break, this episode was recorded before we heard the good news that the Worker Protection Bill has been shelved.
