"How YOU pay for the kind of fake news that got Donald Trump elected"

Saturday 15 July, 12 noon Club Room, The Swan, Wedmore BS28 4EQ

During the 14 years Peter Wright edited The Mail on Sunday, the paper revealed the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, how Prince Charles called China's leaders 'appalling waxworks' and that John Prescott loved croquet... 

In 2012, in response to the Leveson Inquiry, he became a key figure in setting up the Independent Press Standards Organisation.  

When not meeting ministers he spends his time in Mudgley, where he has planted a small commercial vineyard (1250 vines). The first harvest is picked; results should be drinkable by 2018.

Tickets: £8 (£20 to include a light lunch in the Swan restaurant with the speaker)
