ATCA 5000 and the mi2g Intelligence Unit hosted the Liberal Democrats as they announced their economic policy for the next Parliament. Both the Deputy Prime Minster Nick Clegg and the Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander spoke at the event, and took questions from the media. This was a significant event of the 2015 General Election as the Lib Dems were the first party to set out details of their fiscal plans. They set out how the party plans to deliver a stronger UK economy and a fairer society, with a clear plan for balancing the books, as well as protecting the vulnerable. The party emphasised the need to provide stability, to finish the job, and finish it fairly, getting the balance right and investing in public services for the future.
Similar events will be sponsored by ATCA 5000 for other political parties at London landmarks leading up to the general election in the United Kingdom to promote Socratic dialogue.
