Part of The State We're In : three weeks of political work leading up to the General Election
Presented by The Same But Different
Right Honourable Gentlemen aims to explore the 'game' of the parliamentary election process – with all the party tactics, glitter and general absurdity that ensues in this modern popularity contest – by focusing on the format of the TV debates, a relatively new addition to the election process in the UK. When we judge our candidates on appearance and personality rather than policy, what do we sacrifice? What's it all for? Who is it all for? Who wins… and does it matter?
Watch as both parties fail, redeem themselves and then inevitably fail again as they desperately try to distract and impress potential voters just long enough to survive the evening.
