Stuart Maconie: The Nanny State Made Me

It was the backbone of our post-war greatness and it promoted some of the boldest and most brilliant schemes this isle has ever produced: it, was the Welfare State.
For Words Weekend Stuart Maconie tells Britain’s Welfare State story through his own history of growing up as a Northern working class boy. Stuart looks toward Britain’s future, making an emotional case for believing in more than profit and loss and championing a just, fairer society. Where do you stand?
