David was the speaker at our first monthly talk in November 2013. His subject was Can Anyone Win the General Election? He said “There’s going to be blood on the carpet when the election comes around in May 2015. In the meantime, the fortunes of the Conservative and Labour parties will fluctuate with sometimes one suffering setbacks and then the other”. As another General Election approaches, David will explore how UK’s political and social environment has changed over the last ten years.

During his career David has worked for ITV and the BBC, been a columnist with the Independent and Independent on Sunday, the Guardian and the Observer, and the Times. He currently hosts BBC Radio 4’s The Briefing Room.

The dates for 2024 are: to be fixed yet.
Outings
These are organised from time to time by members to places of interest in London and the Home Counties. Destinations are varied and can always be reached by public transport, usually within the Freedom Pass Zone, but occasionally a bit further afield. Forthcoming Outings are advertised in WOW. They are open to all members. Reports on previous Outings can be found on our Recent News webpage. If you want to arrange a visit or have a suggestion to make for Outings Coordinator, Judith Altshul, to research and plan, please contact her at outingscoord.iu3a@gmail.com. Here is some information about forthcoming Outings:

The Outing to Brighton on Tuesday 12 September has proved very popular and registration is now closed.

Thursday 5 October, 2.00pm, Newington Green Meeting House: focussing on the history of the building and its congregation, which included many revolutionary thinkers and political activists, notably Mary Woolstonecraft, known as the founding mother of western feminism. There will also be an opportunity to view the current exhibition on the historical links between the Meeting House and the political movement to abolish slavery. If you want to attend please contact Judith at outingscoord.iu3a@gmail.com.

iU3A's pub lunches provide an opportunity for members to meet each other in a social atmosphere. They take place monthly, around Islington. If you are buying a lunch the cost is around £10 to £12 with drinks being extra. If you'd like to come along to one of these please email Andy Watson here for more information or to reserve your place.

Andy WilsonEach of our lunches held so far have attracted about 15 iU3A members who've enjoyed some good chat. While originally conceived to attract more male members there has been good support from women members. Do come along and join us.

Details of the Pub Lunch Groups schedule can be found in Beacon or in WOW.
