In this edifying sofa discussion, school teacher David Perks tells us why, with a group of passionate teachers, he is setting up a science ‘free school’ in East London. What is key, he argues, is the need to challenge the pervasive low expectations we have for young people’s ability to learn. Comparable with the best public schools in the country, his school promises to offer: specialist teachers with a passion for their subject; the English baccalaureate; intensive mornings and practical afternoons; homework in school and more. With extraordinary ambitions to open the door to young people in the East End based on ‘line of site’ proximity to the school, his school will be a first in giving many young people the chance to win a place at the best universities to study science. The litmus test for success he tells us will be how many of his students make an impact on the world. His compelling case leaves discussants more than a little inspired. WORLDwrite is delighted to announce its support for this unique and aspirational venture.

If today there is, as Brendan O’Neill describes, a ‘moral vacuum’ do we really have such things as ‘moral panics’ or are there just panics and much moralising by an elite who hold the public in contempt. From the contents of kid’s lunchboxes to abortion, this debate remains as pertinent as ever since hiding behind the science seems to be the order of the day. The speakers are: David Aaronovitch columnist, The Times; Brendan O'Neill editor, Spiked; Jenni Russell columnist and broadcaster; writer, Evening Standard, Sunday Times and Guardian. The chair is Claire Fox Director of The Institute of Ideas.
As abortion hits UK headlines with calls to cut the time limit again, Dr Ellie Lee sets the record straight on what should be a personal choice for women and doctors, not a legal matter, not a matter for science or MP predilections and posturing. This timely ‘on the sofa’ discussion is a must for everyone concerned with where this debate is heading. In a civilised society Dr Lee explains, we need to make it possible for everyone to act according to their needs and views. In practice she argues this requires the decriminalisation of abortion and she tells us, the Sarah Catt case provides a cast iron argument for that. Not everyone will agree the stage at which life matters she points out and not everyone on the sofa agrees with Dr Lee. Yet, her compelling insights leave us in no doubt that her approach would make it possible to cater for women’s needs and doctors' preferences without imposing on anyone.
The talented Bold Futures team produced as a spoof and an experiment, a suit that allows for the innocent cuddling of children. When the child wearing the suit is touched for too long or in inappropriate areas an alarm goes off, first gently hinting to potential ambiguities, finally assertively reminding (flashlights! bells!) the parent or care-taker and others around of their responsibility. The proposal was shown to parents, child minders and a child protection professional to spark debate about rational and irrational fears, about risks, technology, the media and attitudes within society towards child safety. The project was
also presented and discussed in exhibitions and on various blogs. WORLDbytes is delighted to host edited highlights of their experiment.
In a new series of studio shorts, WORLDbytes has invited Spiked writers to share their insights. In this first programme, deputy editor Rob Lyons provides telling commentary on the crisis in Europe and to end austerity explains why growth itself needs defending.

While in principle, everyone supports the idea of a free press, in practice there seems to be ever greater appetite for restraining it. Without total freedom of the press, are we jeopardising the role of the media as a check on politicians, institutions and businesses? Do we even have a free enough press as it stands? Wasn't the Leveson Inquiry itself a form of state interference? Who can we expect to scrutinise unelected, unaccountable judges if the press is cowed? Filmed at the Battle of Ideas this debate formed part of the media strand and provides many vital insights. Speakers include: Professor George Brock, Mick Hume, Christina Patterson & Raymond Snoddy. The chair is Patrick Hayes.
Is lobbying, 'the next big scandal waiting to happen'? A series of lobbying controversies suggest so. The existence of firms created to influence politicians reinforce suspicions that politicians are buyable. In response, the government is considering a statutory register of lobbyists, which could result in fines and imprisonment for 'improper attempts' to influence politicians. Is it a disaster that political debate is conducted behind closed doors by paid professionals? Or is there a danger that demands for control of lobbying will undermine a key element of democracy? Speakers include: Simon Burall, Eliane Glaser, Oliver Foster, James Matthews, Mary Monfries, Chair Kirk Leech
With over one million 16-24 year olds currently unemployed in the UK, joblessness among the young is a pressing problem. Yet it's not a new one. In the past people often moved to find work; today a record number of young people remain at home living with their parents. Do young British people need to have a bit more 'get-up-and-go' or are such cultural explanations for unemployment merely a cover for the market's failure to provide work? Filmed at the Battle of ideas, speakers include: Tess Lanning; Jo Lopes; Shiv Malik & Peter Smith. The debate is chaired by Joel Cohen.
When the SNP won the Scottish elections and pledged to hold a referendum on an independent Scotland, doubt was cast on the future of the UK. Polls suggest most Scots are against independence, and the SNP victory was about disillusionment with other parties. Those in favour of maintaining the Union however, struggle to make a positive case for it, even speakers in this Battle of Ideas 'in conversation' struggle to make one. What does this say about the meaning of Britishness today and for the future? Might we indeed be 'sleepwalking into the break-up of the Union'? Speakers include: Craig Fairnington, Joyce McMillan, Max Wind-Cowie, Chair: Justine Brian
