The Social Distance Between Us gets to the root of one of Britain’s biggest problems. Darren believes that a ravine cuts through this country, partitioning the powerful from the powerless, the vocal from the voiceless and the fortunate from those too often forgotten. The problem is stark: for generations a select group of people with very limited experience of social inequality have been charged with discussing and debating it. That means Britain has a chronic, long-distance relationship with reality. In this well-argued analysis, Darren not only clearly identifies the problems, but he also writes about how we can do more towards tackling them. Chaired by Chris Brookmyre.
