The CapX Podcast: Census sensibilities


What kind of country is Britain today?

That might be a rather broad question, but thanks to the recently published census, we can have a stab at answering it – at least for England and Wales. For this week’s topical podcast we kick off with deep dive into those findings, what they say about Britain’s demography and, in particular, the rapidly declining status of Christianity.

And if it’s British institutions you’re worried about, you might be interested in hearing about this week’s hoo-ha at the Wellcome Trust, where the museum’s own board appear uncomfortable with the very concept of a museum.



We’ll also trawl through the iniquities of the Online Safety Bill with our colleague Matthew Feeney, the Head of Tech and Innovation at the Centre for Policy Studies.
