Thinking on Sunday - Debate: Is UKIP Ethical?

A debate on the Ethics (or lack of) the UK Independence Party


Tom Rubens is a semi-retired teacher of English and Philosophy. He has worked as a university and college lecturer, and as a private tutor, and is still active in the latter field.
Linked to his teaching work is his writing activity: he has produced eight books on philosophy (seven published so far) and has also published poetry. A novel is due to appear later this year.
He has been a member of Conway Hall Ethical Society since the 1980s, and has been active at Conway Hall in a number of ways: serving a brief period as editor of the Ethical Record: delivering a large number of Sunday morning lectures; and doing archive work on material in the Society's journals from the 1870s onwards.
Anne Marie Waters is one of the country's leading secularists and has been a spokesperson for the National Secular Society and the One Law for All campaign and has campaigned for free speech and women's rights. She is standing as the UKIP candidate for Basildon and Billericay at the next election.
Chair - Norman Bacrac
Norman was first elected a Trustee of the Ethical Society several decades ago. He is also Editor of the Society's monthly journal, Ethical Record. As a former physics teacher, he is particularly interested in the hard problem of how the physics of the brain generates conscious experiences, the role it might play in determining the choices we make - and the implications of all this for humanist philosophy.
