The Book

Joe Hayman travels across the UK, visiting over a hundred villages, towns and cities and talking to over a thousand ordinary people about the state of British society. He finds a nation full of kind, decent people but where fear, loss and disillusionment are all too common.

“If politicians really are out of touch with what ordinary lives are like and what ordinary people are thinking, then they need look no further than British Voices.” – Author, broadcaster and journalist Joan Bakewell

“The genius of British Voices is that it allows Britons to speak for themselves, helping us to understand Britain’s modern predicament – a nation of uncertainty, anxiety and drift. It is a beautiful work.” – Anthony Painter, author and social commentator
