    Fundraiser: Kremlin Kleptocrats and how to counter them - An Evening with Bill Browder

    Bill Browder

     

    Bill Browder and Edward Lucas have been allies for more than a decade, alerting the West to the danger of foreign corruption and its enablers.



    Bill is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee human rights campaigner. Once the leading western investor in Russia, he has exposed the greed and brutality at the heart of Vladimir Putin’s regime. He now campaigns against illicit finance — dirty money — and against authoritarian regimes' abuse of the international legal system, notably their intimidation of critics through Interpol Red Notices.

    Bill has pioneered Magnitsky sanctions, named after murdered Russian whistle-blower Sergei Magnitsky, which are now in place in the US, Canada, Britain and other jurisdictions.

    His prize-winning book "Red Notice" is on sale.

    Fundraiser - Getting China Wrong - An Evening with Sir Vince Cable

    Vince Cable

    Vince Cable and Edward Lucas debate UK-China relations

     

    The exposure of an alleged Chinese agent at Westminster has highlighted the controversy over the country's relationship with the People's Republic.

    The Cities of London & Westminster Liberal Democrats are pleased to host this topical discussion on a vital issue that touches foreign and domestic policy.

    Former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable is the author of The China Conundrum: Engagement or Conflict, a book that argues against a US-led “cold war” with China.

    "Snubbing modern China will do nothing for human rights, domestic security or global stability. We should be committed to working with and influencing this rising superpower – without illusions, but also without fear.” he says.

    Edward Lucas, prospective parliamentary candidate for the Cities of London & Westminster, is the former editor of the China Influence Monitor, a weekly newsletter that exposes and counters Chinese Communist Party influence in the West.

    He coined the phrase “Hegemonic Discourse Control” to describe Chinese Communist Party attempts to silence critics and control discussion. “Our media, academic and political freedom are at risk” he argues.

    So who’s wrong? Are the “China-hawks” creating an unnecessary and fruitless confrontation? Or are the “China-doves” paving the way to the West’s eclipse by a totalitarian superpower? 

    Come and decide for yourself, following an evening of simmering discussion.

    Signed copies of The China Conundrum: Engagement or Conflict will be on sale.

    Fundraiser: An Evening with Tom Burke - Climate Change the Forgotten Crisis

    Tom Burke

     

    The Climate Crisis as COP26 drew the world's attention three months ago. Since then the fuel crisis, the conflict in Ukraine and partygate have pulled the headlines away. Pressure seems to be growing to row back on the COP26 commitments.
     

    The Cities of London & Westminster Liberal Democrats are pleased to host a discussion on this vital but neglected issue.
     
    Tom Burke is co-founder and chair of European Climate change think tank E3G and former Friends of the Earth director. E3G's mission is to translate climate politics, economics and policies into action. Tom is also Chairman of the China Dialogue Trust, Climate Advisor to governments and companies in the UK and visiting Professor at both Imperial College and UCL

    Alistair Barr will be the moderator for this event. He is the vice-chair of the Cities of London & Westminster Borough local party and candidate for Marylebone ward in the May local elections. 

    Climate change cannot be left to change itself. Come and give it the attention it deserves.

    Fundraiser - There is Nothing for You Here; Finding Opportunity in the 21st Century - An Evening with Dr. Fiona Hill

     

    Dr. Fiona Hill’s journey from a working-class childhood in Bishop Auckland to the heights of power in Washington DC is the subject of her searing new book “There Is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the 21st Century”.

    She contrasts the waste and unfairness of the British class system with the opportunities she found in the United States, while also highlighting American discrimination based on race and sex.

    As one of the United States’ top Russia-watchers, she has served both the Obama and Trump administrations.

     

    Dr. Hill's book will be available to purchase at the event.

    Fundraiser: Exposing Russia - An Evening with Bill Browder

    Bill Browder

    Once the largest foreign investor in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Bill Browder has now become the Russian dictator’s most tenacious foe. His new book Freezing Order tells the inside story of his campaign to expose the Russian regime’s trillion-dollar looting spree. He also shows how it ruthlessly silences its critics with lawsuits, harassment and assassination.
    Like our parliamentary candidate Edward Lucas, Bill refuses to be silenced as he campaigns against these abuses. Both have worked for years to wake up the West to the danger posed by the Kremlin kleptocracy. From money-laundering that taints Britain’s reputation through to luxury property owned by anonymous offshore companies, these are issues that touch our own lives, freedom and safety here in London. 
    Please join Edward and Bill for drinks followed by discussion on our current reality.
    Bill Browder's book will be available to purchase at the event.
