Pension problems, xenophobia rising & Scotland’s f-oiled economy (E188)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on Britain’s new pension system. Dame Anne Begg MP warns that the “industry is not ready” to help people with the complex decisions they will face and mistakes because of bad advice will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Elif Safak Safak warns of the “dangerous rhetoric” around immigration in Britain, asking if we have learned anything from historic atrocities committed in the name of racial purity. Our producer Sebastian Pacher goes back on the campaign trail with the Liberal Democrats – will people forget broken promises on tuition fees if they decriminalize drugs? And Britain continues its alliance with Saudi Arabia, despite a new report that the Arab’s oil antics could put 35,000 Scottish workers out of a job.
