Oliver Bullough

The UK’s Role as Butler to the World

Tuesday 14 June, 8-9pm

Baillie Gifford Big Tent


Find out how the UK took up its position at the elbow of the worst people on Earth: the oligarchs, kleptocrats and gangsters.

As a country the UK prides itself on values of fair play and the rule of law, but few countries do more to frustrate global anti-corruption efforts. Journalist Oliver Bullough joins us to reveal the devastating facts behind Britain’s financial secrets, corrupt politics and moral guilt.

‘From grasping bankers to opportunistic lawyers and feckless MPs.... Oliver Bullough has drilled down to the root of the malaise that’s rotting the UK system.’ Catherine Belton, Putin’s People

In conversation with Stefan Stern.
