Big Brother Britain, the youth vote, & FGM prosecution (E163)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on Britain’s surveillance state. Former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Chris Huhne warns that there is a “legitimate worry about the Big Brother state” and asks if we can trust security agencies not to use the data they have collected against terrorism for other purposes. Oliver Sidorczuk, of Bite the Ballot, explains why he is campaigning to get youngsters voting. With the first prosecution for FGM in courts at the moment, we ask why no one else has been charged under the 2003 Act. We take a look at the headlines with newspapers touting the threat of Ebola attacks from terrorists. And we take a look at some of MPs’ taxpayer-funded purchases.
