This week's chat

October 10, 2011 #CommsChat with Andrew Hawkins, Jonathan Sheppard and Alex Hilton

At 8pm on Monday 10 October, #CommsChat will be taking on political reputations in the wake of the 2011 party conferences. As the conferences are replaced in the news cycle by new political stories, our guests will be looking at the reputational fallout for the Conservative and Labour parties, and what the conferences now mean in the UK political system.

Andrew Hawkins, executive chairman of polling and research consultancy ComRes, will guest-moderate the session, and we will be joined by Jonathan Sheppard from Insight Public Affairs and founder of Tory Radio, as well as Alex Hilton, a Labour blogger who stood for Chelsea and Fulham in the 2010 General Election.

Topics up for debate tonight include:

– Are the reputations of the Conservative and Labour parties better or worse off than they were pre-conference season?
– Did the parties succeed in addressing the issues that the public are currently most invested in?
– In a (cat)flap: were the 2011 conferences more notable for Coalition squabbles than for actual policies?
– Are party conferences now little more than glorified public relations exercises?

#CommsChat will take place from 8-9pm BST on 10 October. You can join in right here on the CommsChat website: A transcript of the session will be posted on Tuesday morning.
