    Dividends, Dividends Everywhere

    Dividends, Dividends Everywhere

    England is facing the prospect of an official drought – millions of people have had hosepipe bans – but 2.4 billion litres of water are wasted in England every day thanks to leaky pipes.
     
    Figures obtained by the Lib Dems show that in the last two years executives at water and sewage companies paid themselves more than £27m in bonuses, benefits and other incentives – and overall gave themselves £48million in pay. In Scotland and Wales though, water is run on a non profit basis. 
     
    Adrian Goldberg hears from Martin Lines an arable farmer in Cambridgeshire and UK Chair of the Nature Friendly Farming Network and Cat Hobbs from the pressure group We Own It.
    Produced by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.

    Alex Jones Misinfo Wars

    Alex Jones Misinfo Wars

    Far right US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been ordered to pay more than $49million dollars – around £40 million pounds – in damages after his repeated claims that the Sandy Hook School massacre in 2012 was a hoax.  He claimed the incident was fabricated to increase support for gun control.
     
    26 people were killed in the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut – 20 of them children; Jones has now acknowledged that the tragedy was real, but how was he allowed to flourish unchecked for so long and build a fortune based on his Infowars brand which – ironically – was source of huge MISinformation.
     
    Adrian Goldberg hears from Michael Edison Hayden, an investigator with the globally respected Southern Poverty Law Centre, based in Alabama and Heidi Siegmund Cuda from the Radicalised Pod.
