Ferdinand Mount and Owen Jones on the class divide, Soho Literary Festival

September 27, 2014 @ 7:00 pm

Thatcher’s speech-writer and a former trade union lobbyist would appear to have nothing in common, but they do: a massive worry that British society has become more polarised than at any time since Magna Carta. Ferdinand Mount, 75, is the author of Mind the Gap and The New Few. Owen Jones, 30, is the author of Chavs. In November 2013 he delivered the Royal Television Society Huw Wheldon Memorial Lecture, entitled Totally Shameless: How TV Portrays the Working Class. Christian Wolmar is a journalist and author and is currently seeking the Labour nomination to stand as the next Mayor of London.
