You are warmly invited to join RSA Fellows and guests, to hear Jason Boxt, Executive Vice-President, Penn Schoen Berland (PSB) offer his take on democracy, polling, elections, Brexit and referenda, hence the agreed event title in a European language!
As the past year or so has shown, patterns of voting, voting intentions and the electorate's fickleness are at times both fast-changing and difficult to predict. Jason, an RSA Fellow and a regular speaker at the annual Scottish Parliament Festival of Politics, is at this time focussed on the autumn USA elections and will offer opinions veering from the light-hearted to the wholly serious.
