'The challenge is to distinguish sharply between the people who told lies, and the people whose only offence was to believe them.' James O'Brien


The age of politely agreeing to disagree is over. LBC’s James O’Brien has become a breakout media star, with a million people tuning in each week to hear him trumping countless guests and politicians into total silence with his inimitable interview technique. But how does he expose these inconsistencies, fallacies and faulty opinions, and can the skill be taught?

James visits the RSA to discuss his new book 'How to be Right (in a World Gone Wrong)' and expertly untangle and rebut the increasingly complex popular opinions on Islam and Islamism, Brexit, LGBTQI, Political Correctness, Feminism, Nanny States and Classical Liberals, The Age Gap and Trump – and shows how doing so will improve our society for the better.
