Festival of Politics - Posh or Poor?

A recording from the Festival of Politics session titled "Posh or Poor?".

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, as they discuss social mobility and meritocracy.
