China Takes The Biscuit (And Everything Else)
What the heck happened? We are now living through – and suffering from – the greatest financial crisis since the 19th century. But it wasn’t supposed to be like this. Our guest tonight, City Editor of the Daily Mail, Alex Brummer, has written a book which traces our gradual descent into this mess.
Way back in the days of Margaret Thatcher, Britain was the first country to adopt wholesale neo-Liberalism as an economic and political philosophy. Deregulation and the free markets triumphed: we all became shareholders and lived happily ever after… at least, that was supposed to be the idea.
Today, our industry is largely owned by faceless companies located in far-off tax havens… the middle classes are being squeezed into irrelevance… and the Chinese own vast swathes of our industry, apparently soon to include our nuclear reactors. That wasn’t what was intended – was it?
Alex’s book “Britain For Sale” cogently explains how all this happened, and he’s got our vote to be the next Chancellor.
Presented by Peter Cox with Dave Bartram and featuring the tax-efficient Ali Gardiner in the chat room.

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
