Assange lawyer on court decision ‘mess’ & ‘inconvenient’ drug policy truth (E146)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the recent decision by Swedish courts in the case of Julian Assange. His lawyer, Per E Samuelson, says the whole situation is a "mess" and that UK and Swedish governments should agree not to extradite him to the US, or allow him safe passage to Ecuador. MP Norman Baker reveals why he resigned from the Home Office, and talks about the "inconvenient" truths that the Conservatives wanted to bury when it comes to UK drug policy. Nick Dearden of the World Development Movement looks at the issues Band Aid 30 should be talking about if they want to improve the situation in Africa for the long-term. And we give our take on Prime Minister’s Questions, with the bedroom tax, mansion tax, and rents on the agenda.
