The virtual politics shed will OPEN for the first time on Wednesday 13th May from 7.30pm
Please come along if you'd like to discuss some of the bigger political issues of the day. Everyone will have a chance to speak but if you don't want to speak you can also just come along to listen. The idea is we'll talk about a topic for about 20-30 minutes and then move on.
So far the suggested topics for discussion are:
- the encroachment upon civil liberties during Covid-19 and beyond
- would ID cards now be a good idea?
- should those over 70/the most vulnerable be forced into prolonged lockdown?
- how to criticise the government during a national emergency?
- can democracy be truly served used remote technology?
- will the pandemic help or hinder efforts to address the climate emergency?
- is it time for local services and local government to be funded differently?
If you have any other suggestions please let us know.
Despite outward appearances, there is plenty of room in the shed. There are comfortable sofas and even a virtual bar. So please RSVP to say you'll be there. We'll then send a 'Zoom' invite which you'll need to access the shed.
Looking forward to seeing you.
Lots of people are using Zoom during the lockdown for both work and social activities, but if you need any help, please email Alasdair Keay [email protected] and he'll be able to help.
