Chain free

The Master of St Peter's, Oxford (former Controller of Radio 4 and BBC Trustee) Mark Damazer will chair a General Election panel at the college on May 17, and has called on some high-powered alumni to take part.

Martin Ivens (Modern History), Editor of The Sunday Times, Helen Lewis (English), deputy editor of the New Statesman and Ben Wright (Modern History) BBC Political Correspondent, will form the panel.  The same trio were convened by Mark a year ago to 'cut through the rhetoric' on the EU referendum.

Where will Mark stand ?  He refused to sign a Brexit panic round robin at the end of March because he was still a BBC Trustee; now unshackled, who knows what might happen ?
