Justice for sale, farcical budgets & human rights under King Abdullah (E166)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the effect of cuts on the British justice system. Greg Foxsmith, nominated for legal aid lawyer of the year, warns that the system is already at breaking point, and we could see 'advice deserts' where justice cannot be found because people can't afford it. Economist Michael Burke says the cross-party supported Charter for Budget Responsibility is “economically illiterate and politically farcical.” We ask if GDP growth is actually good for the country. We take a look at the headlines, with the Ukraine crisis and Syriza's victory in Greece both heading up the papers. And with the death of King Abdullah, we take a look at some the more questionable actions taken under his leadership.
