Given that every opinion poll now suggests the coming Election may again be indecisive, the British Academy is staging a special panel discussion to ask: What would an inconclusive General Election result mean for us all? What do the lessons of history teach us? Come and hear what expert political scientists and historians think and put your questions to them.
