Dis-Uniting the Kingdom, a Zero-Hours Government and Unofficially at War (E209)
John Redwood, MP for Wokingham and Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party's Policy Review Group on Economic Competitiveness, discusses how the Conservatives need Labour’s help to guarantee more home rule in Scotland, why the SNP should be backing David Cameron on the EU referendum and what needs to be done about restructuring the BBC.
Afshin is joined once again by former MP and broadcaster Lembit Opik to give a sideways look at the week’s headlines. This week they discuss London Mayor Boris Johnson comparing his new Cabinet post to the 800,000 people in the UK on zero-hour contracts, the nurses striking against Cameron’s 7-day week NHS and the man who blew the whistle on the UK’s archaic nuclear defense program.
And Peter Kennard is known as the unofficial war artist. He talks to Afshin about his retrospective at the Imperial War Museum, taking in everything from the Iraq War to Nuclear Weapons to the City of London.
