Is there a political divide between cities and towns?
< 1 day ago
A characteristic feature of British society in 2017 is division. Leavers are pitched against Remainers, young against old, graduates against non-graduates. But perhaps the starkest way of understanding social division in the UK is to consider the places where people live.
A new report by the New Economics Foundation and Professor Will Jennings shows how electoral divisions have opened up between towns and cities in England.
To explore this more, Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is this week joined by Lisa Nandy MP and Will Brett, Director of News and Media at NEF.
