Thurs 30th June, 7pm Film: 'Inside Job' – the banking crisis exposed! Rips apart any idea that the banking crisis that started in 2008 was a mistake by stupid bankers. It exposes the greed, corruption and political involvement that resulted in the biggest financial collapse of our times with devastating consequences for millions. The savage cuts in public spending are realities we all face, while those who caused the crisis not only go unpunished but made obscene wealth out of it.
