Chatter #53 – Adam Ramsay on Neo-liberalism and the Government Response to Corona Virus

My guest on today’s show was Adam Ramsay, he’s the main site editor at openDemocracy and is a member of the Scottish Green Party, sits on the board of Voices for Scotland and advisory committees for the Economic Change Unit and the journal Soundings. I asked him on the show in response to an article he penned for openDemocracy last month entitled “Stop blaming ordinary people for the UK’s pandemic failures”. He accuses the government of blaming the people for the poor and slow government response to the Corona Virus pandemic via our failure to adhere to lockdown rules. We discussed how the government has responded to the corona virus crisis, the state of neoliberalism and how this crisis will affect politics.
