Is technology making us lonely?

October 22, 2018


Ayesha Hazarika is joined by Will Tanner, former advisor to Theresa May and Director of Onward, and Resolution Foundation Director Torsten Bell, to discuss their under-reported stories of the week.

Will talked about the Government’s ‘Loneliness Strategy’ that launched on Monday, revealing 22% of UK adults considered themselves lonely, and 3.8 million over-65s consider the TV their main form of company. Torsten asked why few of us are talking about the Budget, which is next Monday.

The panel also discuss their heroes of the week, Andrew Norfolk and Tessa Jowell, and villains, Angela Rayner and Anjem Choudary.
