Iraq one of ‘greatest political messes in history’ (E122)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the British air strikes in Iraq. Patrick Cockburn, author of The Jihadis Return, warns Britain has involved itself in a huge mess that could lead to endless war. Author Dimitris Ballas explains how Britain has fallen behind the rest of Europe, and faces massive inequality and huge numbers of people at risk of poverty. Andy Zaltzman looks at the demise of political comedy in Britain, and believes austerity and an inequal recovery is generating the tensions that could see it rise again. We examine what it means now that Britain goes to war with Iraq once again. And we ask who is fighting who in Obama’s ‘network of death’.
