Online event with Peter Oborne: ‘The Assault on Truth.’ Tuesday, May 11th 2021, 19:30 -20:45

Bath for Europe is delighted to announce that Peter Oborne will be joining us virtually to talk about ‘The Assault on Truth’. Peter will share his thoughts on how and why lying has reached industrial levels in the political sphere, with the result that democracy is under threat. Described by The Guardian as ‘a merciless account of Johnson’s mendacity’, Peter’s latest book ‘The Assault on Truth’ (published in February 2021) is a Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller. It examines the ‘epidemic of deceit’ in Johnson’s Britain and Trump’s America and is compelling reading for anyone appalled at the lack of political accountability.
