While in the UK seeing family, I'll be pausing my vacation to fly the Taxpayers’ Union flag at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty. The conference will be hosted for the Centre for Policy Studies, a UK-based independent think tank advocating for greater economic liberalism. The event will coincide with the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Centre for Policy Studies.
The conference will host speakers from around the globe, including current and former Prime Ministers, academics, MPs, MEPs and political influencers. A full list of speakers can be found here.
The Centre for Policy Studies will be live-streaming the conference, which will begin at 10pm New Zealand time from two locations at the event: the Great Hall and the breakout groups. (I'll also be tweeting interesting tidbits via @BGCraven).
I’m hoping to learn a great deal about the challenges facing the representatives of each nation and how these compare and contrast to New Zealand’s domestic policies.
