FT Live Leader Debate

Lionel Barber, Rob Armstrong, Brooke Masters, Sebastian Mallaby and Delphine Strauss

Saturday, 24 March 2018

2:00pm

45 minutes

Weston Lecture Theatre

£7 - £12.50

Listen to a panel of Financial Times journalists led by editor Lionel Barber discuss the leading column for next week’s paper and join in the debate.

Every morning senior FT editors gather to discuss the next day’s leaders – the columns that express the FT’s official opinions on business, economics and politics. Here is your opportunity to see how this particular editorial banquet is made. The discussion will focus on a topic current to the day, and will determine the content of the leader to run in the next weekday’s FT. Expect strong opinions, disagreement and laughter.

Joining Barber on the panel are chief leader writer Robert Armstrong, comment and analysis editor Brooke Masters, political leader writer and digital comment editor Sebastian Payne, and leader writer Delphine Strauss.

This event is part of a series for FT day at the festival and lasts 45 minutes.
