Oct 08, 2020, 06:00 AM

As conference season went online this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the experience proved vastly different for those who usually attend the annual party conferences.

In this week's podcast, The Critic's David Scullion, Politeia Director Jonathan Isaby and former Conservative Party councillor Caroline ffiske discuss whether it's still worth political parties meeting in person, and if for the Tories it's now more about attracting corporate sponsors than letting party members have their say.
