This event has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. Apologies for any inconvenience cause.

As part of our Whose London Is It Anyway? festival we present a series of talks with Londonist.

The Island: should London be independent?

London’s economy is roughly the same size as that of Sweden. The average Londoner contributes 70% more to Britain’s national income than people elsewhere. So what would happen – to London and to the UK – if we cut loose?

Panelists include:

Tom Chivers is a writer, publisher and arts producer. Born 1983 in south London, he currently lives in Rotherhithe. His publications include the poetry collection How To Build A City (Salt Publishing, 2009), the pamphlets The Terrors (Nine Arches Press, 2009; shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award) and Flood Drain (Annexe Press, 2012).
Travis Elborough has been a freelance writer, author, and cultural commentator for more than a decade. His books include The Bus We Loved: London’s Affair with the Routemaster, Wish You Were Here: England on Sea and London Bridge in America.

Plus more to be announced!
