Danny Dorling , a Professor of Human Geography at the University of Oxford and a frequent commentator on TV and radio, argues that now is the hour to turn our attention to what really went so very wrong for Britain: accepting gross inequality. In the press he has been described as "that rare university professor: expert, politically engaged and able to explain simply why his subject matters.”
The gap between rich and poor in the UK is greater than anywhere else in Europe. By 2019 life expectancy was falling, infant mortality was rising, and living standards falling faster during the previous ten years than in any other decade on record – for most people, other than the very rich.
In his talk Danny Dorling will refer to Finland which is currently the worlds happiest country with the lowest rate of social inequality and childhood poverty.
