Lynton Crosby addressed the negative impact of media coverage in many recent public opinion polls. He spoke of the choices before voters; some politicians’ failure to recognise their electorate’s concerns; and the values voters hold which are often underestimated by political parties.

Crosby discussed today’s key political issues including the north-south divide, job creation, the EU, immigration, the Scottish Referendum, opportunity creation and economic growth.

This discussion took place as part of the Legatum Institute’s work on the Economics of Prosperity, a programme which focuses on the key economic drivers of future prosperity and long-term GDP growth.

The conversation was moderated by Graeme Leach, Director of Economics & Prosperity Studies.
