‘Modernise or die’

Read

The Tories are pushing for a corporate takeover of the construction industry. The ‘Farmer Review’, completely pulls the rug out from small-builders and sub-contractors that have been working in the industry for more than 35 years. If the Construction Leadership Council has its way, traditional builds will be destroyed and replaced with off-site manufacturing that will collapse during the next recession, putting generations of skilled labourers out of work and onto the breadline.

The tide has turned

Never before has there been more important time to figure out what effective corporate, political and creative leadership really looks like. But often the conversation doesn’t get over the binary debate about gender. How do we begin to change the narrative and have a smarter conversation about leadership and culture that allows men and women to work together to ensure that our institutions politics and arts are fit for the 21st Century? Joining us in the discussion is aviator, Tracy Curtis-Taylor, and Chief Creative officer at Mr President, Laura Jordan-Bambach.

Government vs The People

Washington has turned into the thing that it freed itself from 241 years ago – a bloated and corrupt imperial power, desperate for taxes, constantly hunting down resources overseas…sustained by military might and control of the global monetary system. Arrogant beyond belief, oblivious to its own hypocrisy, and dismissive of the need to maintain the respect of other nations – the US government is a reflection of everything it was created to overthrow.

White Collar Crime – Mind the Gap

Since the 2008 financial crisis, UK authorities have been absolutely toothless when it comes to prosecuting bankers who’ve broken the law. Is it simple incompetence? Or is our regulatory system designed so that victims fall through the gaps, while banks are permitted to operate above the law. Joining us this week is former Met Detective and victim of RBS GRG’s long-running scheme to defraud its SME customers, Andy Keats, and researcher & campaigner, Joel Benjamin.

Gods and monsters

Western liberal democracies may emphasise the separation of church and state, but in practice their attempts to control the population are similar to the pre-Enlightenment days where human nature was seen as unchanging, private property ‘natural’, and the power of Kings a fixed, grand purpose designed and ordained by God. Much like the industrial revolution resulted in a grand transfer of power from feudal landlords to corporate grandees, it is unlikely that the establishment will be able to control the forces which Corbynism has unleashed.
