Postcards from the edge of London in the age of Brexit
Dagenham, in east London, was built as a working-class paradise. A giant Ford factory brought jobs and security. But then it stopped making cars. And a single decade of mass immigration upended this tightly knit community. In 2016, the borough of Barking and Dagenham voted overwhelmingly to leave the European Union. Here, its people explain what came before Brexit, why they think Dagenham (and the country) is so divided today – and where Britain’s future resilience might lie.
