‘Symbolic’ defence spending, Ebola headlines & radicalism in the UK (E128)
Afshin Rattansi goes underground on whether Britain is wasting money in the fight against ISIS. Richard Norton Taylor, defence and security correspondent for the Guardian, warns that the British military is “spending money on things [we] don’t need”, with no focus on what would solve the crisis. Robb Leech, documentary filmmaker, discusses radicalism in Britain, and his personal story of when his brother became radicalised and was later convicted under terrorism offences. We reveal PricewaterhouseCoopers’ statement, received after our report on their free advice for Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna. This week’s Breaking Views are dominated by scare stories and crazy cures for Ebola. And as the Serious Fraud Office secures the first guilty plea over the LIBOR scandal, does Theresa May want to disband it?
