A moment of clarity?
Will the seismic trauma of COVID-19 provide the moment of clarity we need to change the way we live? Authoritarian governments seize on Corona to enact the repressive moves they’ve always craved. Chemicals and ventilators: is the Government’s slipperiness with facts undermining its Corona message? Transition denialism drags us towards the abyss. And our special guest, former Labour MP for Bury James Frith, give his totally disinterested take on the arrival of the Starminator.
- “There IS a money tree – and it isn’t magic. It is sensible to spend money when you need to.” – Ian Dunt
- “There will be an upside to this crisis if it makes us confront the changes we need to make in society and in work… It could force a welcome change.” – James Frith
- “You hear people saying don’t question the police, it’s an emergency, don’t complain… That is precisely the opposite to the approach we should be taking.” – Ian Dunt
