The Geography of Austerity: consequences of the coalition government cuts

 WEDNESDAY 2 February, 4pm (followed by refreshments)

In this talk Danny will show a few maps of Britain, current social evils, where the highest cuts and planned, but also who still receives the highest incomes and has the most wealth. He’ll talk about the choices that were ignored, what the alternatives might have been, and how things might just feel in a few years time if current trends continue. The talk ends with some data suggest all is not well even in what appear the least harmed areas.
