Another round: How the British press hacked my phone and ruined my life (with Chris Huhne)

Chris Huhne, the former Lib Dem energy secretary, made headlines when he settled a phone hacking allegation against News UK for a six-figure sum. Huhne alleges that executives at the corporation authorised the hacking of his phone to facilitate Rupert Murdoch's attempted purchase of BSkyB. Ed sat down with Chris to discuss the trial, Rupert Murdoch, and the state of the British media. ** Responding to the statement, a spokesperson for News UK told the Guardian that Chris Huhne had made “serious allegations which are denied”.They said: “Mr Huhne had the right to go to trial but chose to negotiate a financial settlement and to settle his legal action rather than have these allegations tested at trial. It is strongly denied that there was any corporate motive or direction to obtain information unlawfully. Huhne was a senior politician and stories published were legitimate and in the public interest.”A spokesperson for News Group Newspapers (NGN), part of News UK, told the Guardian that it had made an “unreserved apology” to victims of voicemail interception by the News of the World and paid damages to those with “proper claims” since.They said: “As we reach the tail end of litigation, NGN is drawing a line under disputed matters, some of which date back [to] more than 20 years ago. In some cases it has made commercial sense for both parties to come to a settlement agreement before trial to bring a resolution to the matter.”News UK does not accept any liability or make any admissions to claims regarding the Sun for these or any future claims.

Another round: The problem with George Monbiot's solution to the climate crisis

Recent crises have exposed the weaknesses of globalisation and its hyper-extended supply chains. These shocks will only increase in frequency as climate change further destabilises the planet, inducing famines and the mass movement of people escaping extreme weather events. Human activity is the root cause of these problems - including the industrialised way in which we farm. Chris Smaje proposes agrarian localism as a radical alternative: the construction of many, many small-holdings across the UK, with enough land to grow food and raise livestock for the people that live in them.

Another round: Why capitalism doesn't need democracy with Quinn Slobodian

In Liz Truss' disasterous mini budget, she promised to rip up the so-called economic orthodoxy, slashing taxes, in an effort to make Britain a country more like Singapore - but one where you're allowed to chew gum. The ideas that Liz Truss was so determined to implement can be found in practice all over the world: in zones where capital can run unburdened, free from the limits of pesky, old democracy. And, the British right are still looking to them for inspiration. Ed Campbell explores the story of these zones in this interview with professor and author Quinn Slobodian. Hosted on Acast.
