RULE BRITANNIA: Brexit and the End of Empire

Can we blame Brexit on the legacy of the British Empire?

Is ours a nation as much at odds with its own history as with Europe? And is Brexit the cure for Britain’s unhealthy relationship with its past?

In this talk Danny Dorling looks at the impact of the long drawn-out end of the British Empire on the Brexit vote….and asks whether the rupture could have a silver lining.

Dorling who is Professor of 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.

An authoritative, insightful and entertaining look at our controversial past, the anxiety-filled present….and the possibility of a fairer future.

‘He is that rare University professor; expert, politically engaged and able to explain simply why his subject (inequality) matters’ The Guardian
