With social mobility stagnant and the Conservatives searching for a stronger narrative on social fairness at a time of austerity, Dominic Raab MP, in his new book The Meritocrat’s Manifesto, sets out a radical agenda to widen ladders of opportunity, smash glass ceilings and back the British underdog.
Spanning schools reform, vocational training, non-graduate routes into the professions, entrepreneurial avenues, tax and regulatory reform, home ownership, social enterprises and policy on refugees, Raab sets out a range of policy proposals to strengthen social mobility and hold the business and political elites to account.
