​£30 billion war bill & Britain’s rising pollution problem [E89]

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the increasing costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with activist John Rees. But are conflicts good overall for our economy? The rising levels of pollution in the UK have hit an all-time high – killing 30,000 people a year. James Thornton, from ClientEarth, who took the government to court over unsafe air levels, says there’s a culture of non-compliance when it comes to bringing down pollution. And has some good actually come out of the recession? And a firm tasked with analyzing speech by asylum seekers for the Home Office has come under fire by the Supreme Court – but not by Theresa May.
