Who Will Win in 2015? Pollster Peter Kellner in conversation with Tony Wright
As we approach the most uncertain election in modern times, who will get the keys to Number 10?
Birkbeck and the Centre for the Study of British Politics and Public Life have an audience with Peter Kellner, the expert pollster and President of YouGov. Peter, who correctly predicted the Scottish referendum result and the Clacton by-election, will talk about who is likely to win, who is likely to lose and what the UKIP factor means for the General Election and the future of British politics.
Peter Kellner is President of YouGov. He was previously a journalist and political commentator for the Sunday Times, Independent, New Statesman, Evening Standard, BBC Newsnight, BBC election programmes and Channel 4 News. To read some of Peter’s recent articles here and his biography here.
Peter will be in conversation with Tony Wright. As an MP between 1992 and 2010, Tony chaired the Select Committee on Public Administration for over a decade; and also chaired the Select Committee on Reform of the House of Commons. He is now a Professorial Fellow in the Department of Politics at Birkbeck, University of London.
