Corporate spies, means-testing depression, & self-UNemployed [E105]

Afshin Rattansi goes underground in the booming sector of corporate surveillance. Journalist and comedian Mark Thomas discusses his personal experience of being spied on by one of the largest corporations in Britain, and the ‘domestic extremist’ explains how far company spying has infiltrated protest groups. We examine Ed Miliband’s fortunes in our review of parliament’s final PMQs before the summer break. We look at how people with depression will be forced to undergo treatment or face destitution under government plans. Plus, economist Vicky Pryce returns to Going Underground to untangle the jobs market and show how the growing number of self-employed workers is symptomatic of austerity.
