Caroline Knowles,Professor of Sociology at Goldsmith's College, navigatesthe path of the humble flip-flop through the backstreets of globalisation. We look at how many taxpayer pounds are shed on RAF Typhoons currently patrolling Ukrainian airspace. We examine the dubious record of Lord Myners, Cameron’s appointee in charge of securing a better price on public assents following the Royal Mail fiasco.
