[Film] Austerity Britain: Part Two

Austerity Britain is my series of short films challenging the claim that "we're all in this together", and exposing the 'culture of cuts' as a counter-productive ideological obsession (read more about my motivations here).

Part Two focusses on education, where austerity translates into devastating cuts to school funding and the closure of children's centers all around the country.

PART TWO:



Among the contributors are two prominent economists arguing against the status quo: Richard Murphy and Steve Keen. Both are professors at universities in London and both recently signed a statement along with over 100 other economists, supporting Labour's proposals in this election.

Part One (below) focusses on the issue of homelessness - specifically in my home town of Cambridge where cases of rough sleeping are on the rise and night shelters are struggling to keep up with demand.

Part One focusses on the issue of homelessness - specifically in my home town of Cambridge where cases of rough sleeping are on the rise and night shelters are struggling to keep up with demand. It also features political economist Richard Murphy, a professor at City University of London.
