Education system in meltdown, plus who controls Britain’s nuclear weapons? [E101]

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on US influence over Britain’s nuclear weapons. Guardian columnist Richard Norton Taylor questions whether the UK’s weapons are truly independent, and asks if they are breaching the non-proliferation treaty. Christine Blower, general secretary of the NUT, explains why teachers across the country are set to strike, and the battle against the ‘incredibly unpopular’ Michael Gove. Ken Livingstone compares Ed Miliband to Margaret Thatcher and Clement Attlee. We introduce the man who wanted to train and arm 100,000 Syrian rebels just two years ago. And we take a look at the £88 billion that the coalition has spent outsourcing services to privately-owned companies in the last four years.
