Scrapping human rights, Labour not an alternative, & fleeing Ebola (E134)
Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the future of human rights in Britain. Richard Clayton, a leading Human Rights QC, warns it’s become a ‘whipping boy’ used by politicians, and it is the ‘only protection’ against mass surveillance. Robert Clough, author of ‘Labour, a Party for Imperialism’, warns the party is no different to the ConDem coalition, and even if elected austerity would continue because “a government is allowed into in order to protect, first and foremost, the interests of the City of London.” With the third anniversary of Britain’s war with Libya approaching, we look at the state of that country, and ask if British allies are supporting ISIS-affiliate Libyan Dawn. We take a look at PMQs, with Ebola and the NHS on the agenda. And a Home Office report suggests up to 2,000 police officers could be corrupt.
