Learn about the UK's 2015 general election: how does the system work, what is at stake, and how will it affect you? Whether or not you have a vote, if you want to gain a better understanding of UK polls and political issues, join us for discussion and up-to-date insight before and after polling day.
Week Two (What is at stake?): We will examine the main issues in the election campaign and the parties' stances. Who is in the running and what do they want?
Week Three (Why did that happen?): We will analyse the results and try to set out the governing options in the House of Commons. What do the results tell us about the state of British politics?
