​Austerity bites at the sharp end of the cuts & HealthWatch tackles unsafe hospital discharges [E103]

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the cost of austerity and a spike in class-consciousness. Journalist and author Mary O’Hara describes a growing sense of social division and the scandalous rise of food poverty in her nationwide study, highlighting deep discontent with an ‘out-of-touch’ political class. We ponder the likely outcomes of the secret TTIP deal between the EU and the US, which will allow foreign multinationals to sue Britain, and offer our round up of media misinformation. Plus, we speak to Mark Bush, director of policy and intelligence at HealthWatch, about the disturbing failure of NHS services to offer effective care plans to vulnerable patients, squandering billions of pounds on unsafe, early discharges.
