Last week's Broadcasting House featured a report on trade unions from a socialist historian. This week we got an 'alternative budget statement' from 'ethical champion' Ed Mayo (yes, not Egg Mayo), head of Cooperatives UK, and a member of countless other 'third sector' - ie left-wing - organisations (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Mayo).
Mr Mayo does not approve of 'consumerism'.
Later BH attended the launch of a new feminist organisation, UK Feminista. One old-time feminist reminded us how bad Mrs Thatcher was before we heard from left-wing Hannah Pool of The Guardian.
At least Paddy O'Connell read out the Sunday Times's revelations about the two Labour ex-ministers during his programme's paper review.
