Oliver Bullough with Ian Rankin: How Britain Got Addicted to Dirty Money
Sponsored by

A ‘ghost company’ based in Edinburgh was recently accused of supporting Russian military services, thus aiding the invasion of Ukraine – a stark example of how Britain pimps itself out to international dirty money. Butler to the World is Oliver Bullough’s analysis of how Britain turned a blind eye to sources of trillions of dollars poured into British markets, helping billionaires shelter from scrutiny. He’s interviewed by Ian Rankin, who wrote about similar skulduggery in his Rebus novel Rather Be The Devil.
