Abstract

Much of the recent public outcry over the phone hacking scandal has been over the relative unaccountability of News International and its apparently close ties with politicians and the police. David Beetham argues that this influence extends to the whole corporate sector in the UK, a sector that has an anti-public sector agenda which has become embedded at the heart of government.
