Luke Tryl, UK Director: "What is striking about the steady march towards gay equality is that it was done in a very British way - through dialogue and creating the space for people to ask questions.

"If America has a chasm, we have a kaleidoscope. Last year More in Common published a report, Britain’s Choice, which identified not two opposing groups — Labour or Tory; Leave or Remain — but seven types of British citizen, who form shifting alliances".

'Pursuing a ‘war on woke’ is bad leadership. Britain’s choice is not between a flag-waving jingoism or throwing its history into the river, and political leaders fail us when they frame debates in those terms.'

"The really striking think about much of the culture wars issues is that they frankly don't engage that many people....Politics needs to provide us a way forward that isn't always about trying to create false debate or false division"
