Join Kevin Albertson, James Meadway, Ian Rock and Chris Fox – authors of the recently launched Haynes How to Run the Country Manual – for an election special evening of discussion at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School.
This event promises to cut through the socio-political economic waffle and get straight to the heart of the issues our nation faces and the choices we make in the run-up (or should that be run-down) to the election in May.
Eschewing party political matters and talking straight to the issues in an accessible way, authors of How to Run the Country Manual explain what running the country is all about.

Managing Britain is a complex operation - one that dramatically affects all of our lives as citizens. Now Haynes have put together a team of experts to write a 'workshop manual' that explains in plain English how the system works - a 'nuts & bolts' layperson's guide to all the big questions that concern people - which politicians rarely give straight answers to. Split into extensive sections on economics, politics and society, Haynes show how to strip down the machinery of state and give it a good servicing!
