The special New Year's Day 2011 edition of BBC Radio 4's 'Beyond Westminster', in which Andrew Rawnsley considers the lessons of history for Britain's coalition government - and its opponents. Conservative and Liberal Democrat ministers are busily advancing their ambitious political and economic agenda - albeit amid parliamentary revolts and embarrassing comments to undercover reporters. Exactly a hundred years ago too, no party had an outright majority at Westminster, and a Liberal government relied on Irish Nationalists and a fledgling Labour Party to enact reform of Parliament, a radical budget and social changes. Lloyd George continued in coalition with the Conservatives after World War One only for peacetime tensions within the government to culminate in the ejection from Downing Street of Britain's last Liberal prime minister, amid mass disaffection with Liberal splits. Can Nick Clegg avoid a similar fate befalling today's Liberal Democrats? Seven months into 'new politics', Andrew Rawnsley explores with historians Juliet Nicolson and Martin Pugh the record of past coalitions. He also discusses with The Rt. Hon. David Davis MP, Simon Hughes MP and Tristram Hunt MP the lessons of the past and questions whether this coalition will re-shape British politics. 1. Language: English. Narrator: uncredited.

Packed with fascinating data that paints a provocative picture of the new rich. In Fortunes of Change, David Callahan contends that something big is happening among the rich in America: they're drifting to the left. When Callahan set out to write a book on the new upper class, he expected to profile a greedy and reactionary elite - the robber barons of a second Gilded Age. Instead, he discovered something else. While many of the rich still back a GOP that stands against taxes and regulation, liberalism is spreading fast among the wealthy. In Fortunes of Change, we meet an upper class increasingly filled with super-educated professionals and entrepreneurs who work in "knowledge" industries and live in the bluest parts of America. This cosmopolitan elite takes for granted such key liberal ideas as multiculturalism and active government, and have ever less in common with an extremist GOP based in small-town America and dominated by Tea Party activists and the likes of Sarah Palin. Fortunes of Change explores: Why some of America's wealthiest people backed Barack Obama's presidential bid and are pouring record sums into the Democratic Party and liberal organizations, even though they stand to see their taxes go up How a few big donors have spent millions to create the modern gay rights movement and how environmental activists have tapped a river of new liberal cash Why Hollywood, rolling in new profits thanks to globalization, has more money than ever to back Democratic candidates and push politics to the left Why Silicon Valley is turning more liberal and how tech money - including Bill Gates's vast fortune - is funding a growing array of liberal groups and politicians How the upper class is likely to get more liberal as young heirs are inculcated with liberal ideas in America's most elite prep schools and universities David Callahan is a co-founder of the thi 1.

He's the media's darling, an inspiration to many, and the answer to everything from healthcare to taxes. He is Barack Obama - the silver-tongued senator with a phrase for everything and a promise for everyone. Sound too good to be true? That's what David Freddoso, investigative reporter and National Review Online columnist, examines in The Case Against Barack Obama.In this shocking expose, Freddoso explores the reality behind the rhetoric, the plans behind the promises, and the faults the facade, revealing: Why Obama's inexperience and extreme left-wing voting record are more dangerous than any threat we face today. Why the Rev. Wright debacle reveals Obama's poor judgment of character and deceitful nature. Why it won't be politics of change with President Obama - it will be liberal politics as usual. Freddoso exposes the real Barack Obama: a typical big-government politician, the number-one most liberal U.S. senator, and - if he were commander-in-chief - a serious threat to our national security. 1.

Participating in the economy is a part of everyday life, yet much of what is commonly accepted as fact is wrong. Keynesian schoolteachers and the liberal media have filled the world with politically correct errors that myth-busting professor Robert Murphy sets straight. Murphy explains hot topics like outsourcing (why it's good for Americans) and zoning restrictions (why they're not). Just like the other books in the P.I.G. series, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism pulls no punches. Murphy defends the free market on such issues as safety regulations, racial discrimination, and child-labor laws, in a breezy manner that is anything but textbook-like. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism sets the record straight on everything you thought you knew about economics. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Perry Richards.
