Sanctioning the starving, breaking views & profiting from punishment (E275)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on benefit sanctions, the week’s news and the prison system. Tasmina Ahmed Sheikh, MP for Ochil and South Perthshire talks about her bill that seeks to offer automatic hardship payments to those in danger of starvation. On Remembrance Day, Afshin looks at present wars. Lembit Opik goes through the week’s news from teen hackers suing for defamation to leaks in the Vatican. Plus Frances Crook, chief executive of the Howard League for Penal Reform speaks of overcrowded and underfunded - the real reasons why a prison sentence can be a death penalty.
