The Westminster Accounts: democracy for sale?

The Westminster Accounts: democracy for sale?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a newsroom ThinkIn. In-person and digital-only tickets are available.

Every year, millions of pounds pour into Westminster – into the accounts of the people, groups, organisations and parties that work and operate at the centre of government. Although most of this money must technically be disclosed to the public, the way that information is reported, stored and displayed makes it difficult to scrutinise. 

This landmark investigation, called the Westminster Accounts, reveals the network of financial relationships that shapes how the country is being run, the payments and donations that are influencing policy decisions and shaping legislation. 

Join us for a special ThinkIn where Tortoise joins forces with Sky News to delve into the stories of the Westminster Accounts, and explore how much of British democracy has been up for sale.
