How corrupt is Britain?

Wednesday, 18 February 2015

Dr David Whyte of the University of Liverpool brings together a wide range of leading commentators and campaigners, offering a series of troubling answers, in his forthcoming book to be released on 20 March 2015 and published by Pluto Press. The powerful punchy contributions will shine a light on the corruption fundamentally embedded in UK politics, police, and finance. This book builds on previous collaborations between David Whyte and the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies. 

On Thursday 26 March 2015, John McDonnell MP will be hosting a People's Parliament event on corruption in the UK. Speakers will include David Whyte, University of Liverpool; Joanna Gilmore, Northern Police Monitoring Project and University of York; John Christensen, Tax Justice Network; Paul O'Connor, Pat Finucane Centre; and Sheila Coleman, Hillsborough Justice Campaign.

On Thursday 19 June 2015, the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies and the University of Liverpool are hosting a one day conference in London. 'Challenging state and corporate accountability' will bring together activists and academics to discuss how best to bring institutions to account.

Below is an interview with David on corruption in Britain.
