In this powerful, insightful interview Owen Jones speaks to actor Martin Sheen about Working Class Britain.
He describes how you cannot underestimate the power of the “take back control” message. You are talking about communities that have lost all sense of control in terms of de-industrialisation, globalisation and abandonment from central government.
However this is little to do with EU membership but needs to be tackled at a domestic level; measures such as co-operatives, credit unions and community governance which can alleviate many of the stresses and anxieties communities face in 2016.
This is a wonderful interview and well worth a watch in full.
