Finishes at: Saturday 22 October 1:15 PM
With Moneyland in 2018 Oliver Bullough revealed some shocking home truths. In 2022 the war in Ukraine has turned our attention to oligarchs in the UK. How did they end up here? The journalist examines how Britain became the destination of choice for those who prefer not to answer questions about their wealth. He reveals how the UK continues to frustrate global anti-corruption efforts and exposes a financial system eroded by greed and a corruption of our politics.
‘Anyone who cares about the future of this country should read this … incendiary story of our national decline.’ Edward Lucas
