Why Free Speech Matters

Last week, the IEA released a new book authored by Dr Jamie Whyte, former Research Director at the Institute of Economic Affairs. In his book, Why Free Speech Matters, Jamie issued a rally cry, saying that those who prize free speech must once again defend it. In this week's podcast, IEA Communications & Marketing Assistant Kieran Neild-Ali was joined by Jamie in the IEA studio to discuss his work. He was also joined by Dr Kristian Niemietz, Head of Political Economy at the IEA, who himself is interested in cultural issues related to freedom of speech.

In this episode of The Swift Half, Chris chats with historian, and columnist and leader writer for The Telegraph - Tim Stanley.

They discuss Tim's upcoming book 'Whatever Happened to Tradition? History, Belonging and the Future of the West' 'The West feels lost. Brexit, Trump, the coronavirus: we hurtle from one crisis to another, lacking definition, terrified that our best days are behind us. The central argument of this book is that we can only face the future with hope if we have a proper sense of tradition – political, social and religious. We ignore our past at our peril. The problem, argues Tim Stanley, is that the Western tradition is anti-tradition, that we have a habit of discarding old ways and old knowledge, leaving us uncertain how to act or, even, of who we really are.'

The European Union has set out its proposals to change the Northern Ireland Protocol after the Brexit Minister, Lord Frost, announced in Lisbon earlier this week that the UK will trigger Article 16 if changes to the agreement are not made.

The protocol was designed to prevent checks along the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, following Brexit. But since it came into force at the start of 2021, it has prompted disagreements between the UK and EU because it has disrupted trade between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

IEA Communications and Marketing Assistant, Kieran Neild Ali, sat down with Victoria Hewsonwho is Head of Regulatory Affairs at the IEA, to discuss the Northern Ireland Protocol. They discussed the origins of the Northern Ireland Protocol, the constitutional and economic problems with the agreement and what the future holds for UK-EU relations.

Over the past two weeks, the two major political parties of the UK have held their annual conferences, giving voters a chance to see what they stand for, their policy ambitions and assess the character of their leaders.

But are party conferences as important as they used to be? Polling suggests that both Labour and the Conservatives have not moved in the polls, remaining as they were before conference season. The Tories appear to have gained more media coverage than Labour, but is that good or bad? 

To find out the current state of the political landscape, what our major parties stand for and to get down into the nitty-gritty of the last few weeks, giving you a round-up of both conferences, Kieran Neild-Ali, IEA Communications and Marketing Assistant, was joined by IEA Chief Operating Officer Andy Mayer, who attended Labour conference for the IEA, and Duncan Simpson, Research Director at the TaxPayers’ Alliance, who attended the Conservative’s conference in Manchester.

The energy crisis explained

This week the headlines have been dominated by the energy crisis unfolding across Britain and much of the world. A shortage in the supply of gas, causing a spike in energy prices, coupled with a state-imposed price cap has led to energy companies going bust, and larger suppliers unable to meet demand from new customers.

To explain the current energy crisis, Kieran Neild, IEA Communications and Marketing Assistant, was joined by James Forder, our new Academic & Research Director at the IEA and Dr Lawrence Haar, who is a Senior Lecturer in Finance at Brighton University School of Business and Law.
