'Never trust the government' - punk veteran Vivienne Westwood on fracking & environment [E78]

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the government’s love affair with facking with punk pioneer and activist Vivienne Westwood. She calls for more focus on renewable energy and blames corporate interests for the current problems with climate change. Tired of the bedroom tax debate? One think tank says the best way to solve it is to abolish the Department for Work and Pensions! Plus, David Cameron gets lyrical about Gary Barlow’s tax avoidance at this week’s PMQs. And, George Osborne assumes the role of the Sherriff of Nottingham – as he vows to continue fighting the Robin Hood Tax.
