The Driller, the Banker and the Minister

Tom Rubens on the uneasy relationship between industrial giants, big banks and central government

A huge power-nexus exists in Britain between the fossil fuel industries, the big banks and central government. This oligarchical network is a fundamental threat to democracy. Can it be combatted only by a truly radical political initiative?
Tom Rubens is a long-standing member of the Conway Hall Ethical Society and a regular contributor to the Ethical Record. He has worked in the Conway Hall Library & Archives in collating and editing the Conway Memorial Lectures to the present day.
