Beyond the Noise with David Jamieson is a weekly podcast with CommonSpace journalist David Jamieson, where he gets behind the 24/7 outrage-driven social media news circus and gets to heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.
THIS week, Jamieson is joined by Adam Ramsay, editor at Open Democracy and one of a small group of journalists who have investigated the ‘dark money’ scandal, of covert funding for rightwing politics in the UK.
Among other things they discuss:
– 1:00 What is the dark money scandal, and how did Ramsay first come across it?
– 8:15 Who are the different factions of the British right, and how did they develop over time?
– 29:45 How should the British left orientate on the crisis in the ruling class, especially regarding Brexit?
– 15:39 Is a second referendum on EU membership a threat to future left advance, and specifically Scottish independence?
