Getting Off on a Technicality
Jeremy Hunt’s bland Budget offers little hope – but hey, at least we avoided a technical recession. The panel picks apart the Chancellor’s pledges. Plus, as Rishi Sunak lets his MPs duke it out – is he above the fray, or asleep at the wheel? Polly Mackenzie, chief social purpose officer at UAL and formerly director of Demos, is this week’s guest.
• “The post-purge Tory party keeps on drifting to the right… it’s a significant problem.” – Ian Dunt
• “Is Sunak someone who actually wants to make things work or does he just want to set things on fire?“ – Ian Dunt
• “Most people of working age have only ever experienced the retirement age going up. We’re creating a nation of nihilists.” – Ian Dunt
• “We need to nuance the boundary between work and retirement. C’mon, life doesn’t end at 70.” – Polly Mackenzie
