Not in Corbyn’s name and certainly not in mine

The establishment is coming for Jeremy Corbyn. That it needed to dredge up a two-year-old story about a damn mural demonstrates their desperation and the lengths it – and its media allies will go to – to prevent an anti-war party leader from assuming power.

Who are the real Olympic winners?

Watch

The sales pitch that is always used when bidding for the Olympics is that the legacy of the games will regenerate a part of the host country. This sounds wonderful in theory but in practice is the best policy for urban renewal to pay for expensive custom built sporting venues that are only used a handful of times? If not, we ask: who are the real Olympic winners?

The business of common sense

Watch

A cursory glance around the business world globally and you can tell that all is not well. Systems are broken. Bureaucracy is running riot. Management frequently does more harm than good. And despite the constant chat about culture, you can often find more culture in a pot of yoghurt. So as businesses begin to acknowledge how disengaged staff really are. We ask.

The great British train robbery

Watch

Privatising British Railways was meant to bring innovation, efficiency, competition and therefore lower fares but the reality, well it’s been very different.

So on this program we ask. Was the neoliberal dream of rail privatisation actually the great British train robbery?

A Universal Basic Income is capitulation to capitalism

Read

In an era of rising inequality and rapid technological change, a Universal Basic Income (UBI) seems to many a worthy solution to the rampant unemployment and underemployment gripping the developed world. But is all what it seems?

RBS v The People. Yes, that’s you…

At Renegade Inc. we don’t take kindly to bankers who prey on small/medium sized businesses. Royal Bank of Scotland CEO Ross McEwan and Chairman Sir Howard Davies are apologists for arguably the biggest corporate heist in UK history.

Profits or policing?

Watch

One thing Theresa May will be remembered for is her treatment of the British police. As Home Secretary, Mrs May brutally cut more than a fifth of all funding to police forces. The unofficial dictat was that the police should do more with less, a mystifying statement that almost guarantees a demoralised and thus compliant workforce. So is this what she wanted? Or was there another motive to this act? A political move maybe, that would begin the privatisation of Britain’s police force.
