Many faces of anonymous, NHS pay protest, & City schmoozing (E138)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the many faces of Anonymous. Gabriella Coleman, who recently penned a book about them, looks at the evolution of a group she describes as a 'political accident', changing from trolling to a serious activist group influencing events from the Arab Spring to the Wikileaks Cablegate affair. We look at the latest fiasco in the Department for Work and Pensions as they are accused of planting fake tweets to push Universal Credit, & replace one scandal-hit contractor with another to assess disability benefits. We check out the headlines in Breaking Views, with tea for the homeless and the NHS black hole in the papers. And we look at who’s schmoozing with whom at the City of London’s lobby group dinner.
