Something has gone really wrong in Britain.

Our economy has tanked, our freedoms are shrinking, and social divisions are growing.  We are living in a country almost unrecognisable from the one that existed a decade ago. But who broke Britain and how did they do it?

Radio presenter and podcaster, James O’Brien reveals the shady network of influence that has created a broken Britain of strikes, shortages and scandals. He maps the web connecting dark think tanks to Downing Street, the journalists complicit in selling it to the public and the media bosses pushing their own agendas.  Focusing on ten individuals he believes are complicit in the downfall, he reveals how a select few have conspired – sometimes by incompetence, sometimes by design – to bring Britain to its knees.

James will be in conversation with BBC Midlands Correspondent, Navtej Johal.
