Their Owen Worst Enemy

Friday, 5 November

“A bingo card of Tory sleaze…” It’s COP26 week so naturally the Tory Government puts the recycling out – bringing back 90s corruption by overturning the suspension of self-enriching paid lobbyist MP OWEN PATERSON. What were they thinking, will it bite them back in the end, what exactly were Randox getting for their money, and can we consign “standards in public life” to the box of quaint historic relics? Plus our guest this week is PAUL HAWKEN, author of Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation.  • “Johnson's like a greasy pastry. The sleaze is baked in.” – NAOMI SMITH • “Politics is the most environmentally destructive industry in the world.” – PAUL HAWKEN • “The Brexit Party saved Labour from an even worse defeat in 2019… ‘Thank God for Nigel Farage’ is quite a statement” – DORIAN LYNSKEY • “The only thing Bolsonaro hates more than trees are the indigenous people living among them.” – NAOMI SMITH www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Buy Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation: https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Paul-Hawken/Regeneration--Ending-the-Climate-Crisis-in-One-Generation/25990481 Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith, Ian Dunt and Ros Taylor.
