Is this still true in the era of e-democracy elections? For the motion: Simon Hoggart, parliamentary sketch writer for the Guardian, author and broadcaster. David Horspool, History editor of the TLS and author of The English Rebel. Against the motion: Roy Hattersley, elected to Parliament in 1964, was Deputy Leader of the Labour Party. In Search of England is his latest book. Simon Schama, Columbia University Professor, presenter of TV history, art and politics programmes, is author of The American Future.
