An online conversation with Sebastian Payne and Chris Deerin, held on Thursday November 18th
The UK government was elected on a pledge to tackle regional inequality. But so far its policies remain vague on how to “build back better”.
Rewatch our online discussion with Sebastian Payne, Whitehall Editor at the Financial Times and author of Broken Heartlands: A Journey Through Labour’s Lost England, and Chris Deerin, Scotland editor of The New Statesman and Director of the Reform Scotland thinktank. Sebastian and Chris’ engaging conversation touched on – among many other topics – trains, devolution, and the many challenges of levelling up socio-economic disparities in England and Scotland.
