An Evening With Bobbie Friedman:

Democracy Ltd: How Money And Donations Corrupted British Politics

Bobby will be speaking about his latest book Democracy Ltd: How money and donations have corrupted British politics.
The funding of political parties has proved to be a near-constant source of scandal and intrigue in the UK over the past twenty years. Scarcely a few months can go by without another story of undue influence and misplaced favours. In this world big businessmen, eccentric loners, fraudsters and dodgy wheeler-dealers rub shoulders with some of the most senior politicians in the country.
Bobby Friedman was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge where he gained a 1st and was President of the Cambridge Union. He has worked as a journalist for the BBC for a number of years, appearing on TV and radio, most notably as a presenter/investigative reporter for the current affairs programme “Spotlight” on BBC1 NI.
He has also worked as a producer, both for BBC Live Political Programmes and BBC Newsnight, where he was part of the team shortlisted for a Royal Television Society Award for an investigation into the cost of translation services.
