2021 is already set to be a monumental year for Britain. On January 1 we will have finally Brexited, with or without a deal. On January 20 Joe Biden will become President of the United States. And as we move towards the summer months more and more of us will be vaccinated against COVID-19.
What will these seismic events mean for the future of the country? Will we see a poorer, more isolated nation struggle to cope with the fallout of Brexit and the pandemic? Or will Britain assert itself with a newfound confidence and sovereignty on the world stage? As we begin to return to ‘normal’ will we see a fairer more unified nation? Or will our economic and cultural divides open up and become even more pronounced?
To discuss and debate these questions, Will Davies and Matthew Goodwin, two of Britain’s most popular political thinkers – one left-leaning, the other right-of-centre – joined us in January 2021.
