Will Hutton argues British business leaders and politicians are selling off the country's best companies for quick profits, in takeovers that wouldn't be allowed in other countries. The result? A dumbed-down, low-wage Britain.

Will Hutton argues British business leaders and politicians are selling off the country's  best companies for quick profits, in takeovers that wouldn't be countenanced in other countries - and the result is a dumbed-down, low-wage Britain.


He reveals in the last ten years £440bn of British companies have been sold off, many in takeovers that wouldn't have been countenanced elsewhere in the world. Selling off Britain , directed by David Alter, ranges from the US takeover of Cadbury to the future of TV, from video games to the wonder material graphene, from James Dyson to debt-laden, foreign-owned Thames Water.
