Corruption in Britain: City of London at forefront of tax avoidance & money laundering industry! – Lord Prem Sikka (E1057)

On this episode of Going Underground, we firstly speak to Lord Prem Sikka. He discusses the neoliberal structural problems in the economy that neither Labour nor the Conservative Party are willing to address, the privatisation by stealth of the National Health Service (NHS) and the subsequent decline of its standard of healthcare provision, the government’s main priority being to provide tax cuts to corporations and the rich as the poor lose out, corporate and super-rich tax avoidance in Britain, the auditing industry and the government’s refusal to crack down on malpractice, the refusal of both Keir Starmer and Boris Johnson to address income inequality and call for redistribution, ties between elected MPs and the financial sector, how London is at the forefront of tax evasion and money laundering, and much more!

Finally, we speak to Rob Faure Walker, author of ‘The Emergence of Extremism: Exposing the Violent Discourse and Language of ‘Radicalisation’. He discusses the UK’s arguably failed ‘Prevent’ counter-terrorism policy, which provides guidelines to identify young children as young as five as potential future terrorists. He also explains why the Prevent strategy actually encourages extremism instead of allowing democratic discourse to empower young people opposed to UK and NATO foreign policy, how his discussions with students as a teacher turned them away from a potential path of Islamist extremism, the growing trend of repressing Muslims around the world – such as in Modi’s India – under the guise of counter-extremism, how Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour Party has gone completely against its own roots, the failure of the War on Terror as a ‘dangerous’ waste of time, and much more!
