The Hustles from Brussels
After Eva Kaili and the corruption arrests in Brussels, is EU democracy really in trouble? Meanwhile, as all the little strikes coalesce into a big one, why do governments love “sending the army in to fix it”? And new research shows working class participation in the creative industries has halved since the 70s. We go behind the figures to ask why. Ian Dunt, Hannah Fearn and Alex Andreou join host Andrew Harrison to huddle around a warm mixing desk.
• “UEFA and FIFA are cesspits for siphoning dirty money, money which infects the rest of our body politic.” – Alex Andreou
• “It’s unbelievable how there were no basic checks on modern slavery during the pandemic.” – Hannah Fearn
• “The Telegraph suggest bringing in the army for every problem at least 8 times a month.” – Ian Dunt
• “Our biggest export is Downton Abbey, so of course our biggest actors are the ones who went to Eton.” – Alex Andreou
