Escape from Guantanamo, pistols at dawn and cocaine in your groceries (E204)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground with journalist and author Victoria Brittain to explore just how sceptical we should be about the impending release of Guantanamo’s final British detainee and why America’s prison camp is still open after years of torture, murder and promises? Iain Overton, the author of Gun Baby Gun: A Bloody Journey Into the World of the Gun, tells us how US foreign policy is entwined with gun wars around the world, and why guns are the problem and not the solution. Plus we are joined for our weekly look at the headlines by Lembit Opik to discuss Royal baby conspiracies, the safety of British mothers, public health pest controllers, the benefits of being a rat and John Kerry’s visit to Somalia.
