Butler to the World - Oliver Bullough

Author and investigative journalist, Oliver Bullough, exposes a government looking the other way whilst the nation sells its real estate, services, football clubs, and its good name to the shadiest and highest bidder.  Compelling and forensically researched Bullough’s unmissable history, Butler to the World, traces Britain’s cynical transition over 70 years from imperial power to the servant of tycoons, tax dodgers, kleptocrats and criminals. We pride ourselves on values of fairness, but come and hear how few countries do more to frustrate global anti-corruption efforts, and how it doesn’t have to be this way.

In conversation with the New Statesman’s business editor, Will Dunn.
