Top US expert on politics to speak.

ONE of America's most prominent commentators on democracy and citizenship is to take part in a public meeting in Liverpool.

Christopher Gates is chairman of the National Civic League in America and a political adviser to Senator Bill Bradley, a former runner for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.

Mr Gates will speak at the Liverpool Medical Institution tomorrow, followed by a question and answer session with the audience.

One of his key themes is likely to be the need to move from a representative democracy to a more participative democracy.

Mr Gates is the guest of Professor John Ashton, the North West director of public health, who has a keen interest in a perceived ``crisis in democracy'' and particularly its links with health.

A buffet supper will be served at 5.30pm and the talk will begin at 6.30pm.

The event is open to all members of the public.
