Prospect Book Club – Polly Toynbee and David Walker
For many years now state funding of services has been under attack from the government and media. In their fierce new book Dismembered, Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee and journalist David Walker speak to teachers, nurses, policemen and soldiers about the challenges they face in an increasingly tough climate for the state.
They find a fragmented NHS, a reduced police force and a divided school system. This disintegration of the public sector has consequences for the peace and prosperity of us all, they argue, especially with the economic shocks that Brexit may bring.
