This talk will make the argument that if we start by considering what is most important to people in their lives, then we end up advocating a very different politics and set of priorities to that which is usually presented. Please think about what has actually happened to you in the last year, of everything that mattered most. Then ask whether you are reasonably happy, all things considered. Now consider what politicians could have done and could do in future to help you, to reduce your health problems and the health risks you face, and even to make you happier. Will living in the most economically unequal society in Europe help? Economic inequalities affect what happens to us and also how we deal with the outcomes of those events. What would a better, more caring, kinder, politics look like?
