108. SULTAN OF SWING: THE LIFE OF DAVID BUTLER

Generously supported by

In 1945 Sir David Butler was the first to turn British constituency results into percentages, and thereby founded the science of psephology. Since then, Butler has shown everyone – from Winston Churchill to today’s millennials – not just how to analyse elections, but how to make sense of our democracy. Michael Crick will discuss with David Butler his remarkable life as the greatest analyst of British elections.
