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.

If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
