    Abstract

    Inequality is pervasive in British society, and has been for as long as Britain has been an economic superpower1. These inequalities are evident in various different aspects of modern life, and include health, employment, regional and educational inequalities. The Covid-19 crisis highlights these pre-existing areas of societal divide and shows how these inequalities have placed the burden of the Covid-19 crisis on the most vulnerable members of society.
