Festival of Politics 2018: Posh or Poor?

  • The Scottish Parliament Horse Wynd Edinburgh EH99 1SP (map)

The demise of forelock tugging and deference to those ‘upstairs’ may make class less obvious, but with inequality and poverty rising, has Britain really thrown off its class obsession? Join our chair Kenny Farquharson, The Times, and panellists including Claire Ainsley, Director, Joseph Rowntree Foundation; Darren McGarvey aka Loki, author of Poverty Safari; Chris Snowdon, author of The Spirit Level Delusion; and John Boothman, The Times, to discuss social mobility and meritocracy.

Tickets are £5/£3.50 and are available from the Festival of Politics booking page.
