Rule Britannia: Brexit and the End of Empire with Danny Dorling
How unusual and odd are we in Europe? For this we can blame the legacy of the British Empire – but we can’t blame anyone else for the Empire.
Danny Dorling, Professor of Geography at University of Oxford and a leading thinker on inequality in Britain, argues that sorting ourselves out post Brexit, is going to require a great deal of introspection, that what we see may not be pleasant. And that Brexit – however it comes – may be part of the cure.
Author of Peak Inequality and increasingly heard on TV and radio, Danny’s work reveals the shameful and widening gap between rich and poor in contemporary Britain. He is authoritative, insightful and entertaining!
‘He is that rare university professor: expert, politically engaged and able to explain simply why his subject (inequality) matters’ The Guardian
