Episode 66: This is Not Normal – the Collapse of Liberal Britain
with Will Davies17th October 2020
This definitely isn’t normal is it? The world feels increasingly like a strange absurdist theatre we have all found our collective selves in. A new book tells the story of the last four years and how we got here. Hosts Zoe Williams and Luke Cooper are joined by Will Davies, professor of political economy and co-director of the Goldsmiths Political Economy Research Centre. His new book offers a timeline and chronology from the Brexit referendum to the 2019 general election and is full of fascinating insights into the changing politics, economics and culture of these new and dangerous times.
