BBC2: Election Blind Dates with Jack Monroe and Georgia Toffolo

“What happens when two strong-minded individuals from opposite sides of the political debate sit down for dinner? To find out, the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme organised a series of election blind dates for the general election campaign. Made in Chelsea star Toff, real name Georgia Toffolo, says she had a privileged background and is a Conservative Party member. Political campaigner and food blogger Jack Monroe, who at one time was unemployed and unable to afford food, has been a member of several parties, including the Labour Party. They went into the meal without knowing who they would be meeting. But did they get on?” – From the BBC website, written by Emma Ailes and John Harrison for the Victoria Derbyshire Programme.
