Interview on Sputnik News

Yesterday, I was interviewed by Sputnik News on the recent British Social Attitudes survey results.

Here’s the story that triggered it: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jul/11/uk-secularism-on-rise-as-more-than-half-say-they-have-no-religion

Here’s how they sold the interview:

According to new research published as part of the British Social Attitudes Survey, only 1% of people in the UK aged 18-24 and only one in three people over the age of 75 identify themselves as religious.

Dr Christopher Cotter from the University of Edinburgh is not entirely convinced that Britain is no longer a Christian country and wonders how Christian Britain was in the first place.

And full audio and text is available here:

I’m also not complaining about the promotion…
