Seminar, Council Chamber
Twenty years ago Will Hutton published his seminal work The State We’re In, which brilliantly analysed the condition of Britain, and especially its economy, at the time. It also provided a blueprint for the wholesale modernisation of the county of the country. Written towards the end of the long period of uninterrupted Tory rule, which began with Mrs Thatcher’s government in 1979, it was widely seen as providing the basis for Tony Blair’s ‘New Labour’, although in retrospect it could be argued that many of Hutton’s more radical proposals were either watered down or ignored altogether by the government which took power in 1997.
