Purley – Selling Economic Freedom

Wed, 19th June 2024 , categories: economics, Meetings, Purley

Conversation with Matthew Lesh, of the Institute of Economic Affairs

You are warmly invited to join us upstairs at Whispers, 5 High St, Purley CR8 2AF on Wednesday 19th June, from 7pm.

We choose from thousands of products in a supermarket or online, and often own multiple electronic consumer goods.  It’s not uncommon for people to catch multiple flights a year, chosen from many competing airlines.  Free markets are everywhere and have transformed our lives.  Yet many have never been more cynical about what they deliver, or keener to have the government interfere in their function.

Join us for our drinks and conversation with Matthew Lesh the Director of Public Policy and Communications at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA).

We recently held a public meeting in Purley and we were joined by Liz Cooper, the Reform UK Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for nearby Carshalton & Wallington. Listen here:


We are growing!

We are expanding our activities via regional Politics in Pubs groups and have created a map where you can search for a group near you. If you live near Salisbury or Northampton we have members who wants to start new groups in those towns, so please let us know if this of interest.

Don’t worry if you can’t find anything nearby as you can start your own group. If you would like to be put in touch with other people interested in talking about politics, please reply to this email letting us know your location and we’ll help to get the conversation started.

We have also started to grow our network with other free speech groups who have a similar interest in open discussion and debate. If you have such a group and want to appear on our map please get in touch.
