Homer and Martin wax about the £650,000 a year pension for Sir Fred "the shred" Goodwin, ex chief of British bank RBS, who have just posted the
largest corporate loss in UK history of £24 billion. And Homer is pleased to have got his tax refund check unlike citizens of Kansas and California.
We wrap the first part of the show discussing President Obama's pull out from Iraq.
"There is going to be pain in this for everybody" says Tim Page from the Trade Union Congress on the economic downturn. We talk to Tim Page, Senior
Policy officer at The Trade Union Congress who leads on Economic and Industrial policy. "Now there have been lots of job losses in the UK and around
the world as a result of the economical down turn and there are going to be lots more" say Tim who talks about the important of union membership and
how unions work with management.
And then a Homer's rant!!!

Why is it that labor unions support the liberals? I've thought of the liberal ideology as more of an idealistic ideology.
Wouldn't it be better for business for the labor unions to work with the conservatives or the libertarian types? I'm more on the libertarian end of
the spectrum and I think that it makes little sense to me why labor unions work with a party that is anti-business.
