UK bombs in Syria, privatising the police and anti-bullying week (E278)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on Syria, police privatisation, the prime minister’s economics and bullies. Peter Ford, Britain’s former Ambassador to Syria, talks about how the government is misleading the public on bombing Syria, the question of moderate rebels and the likelihood of an attack. Plus, did the seeds of our foreign policy fertilise the Middle East for ISIS to grow? Are government police cuts privatising the boys in blue? Former MP and broadcaster Lembit Opik discusses the week’s news from French bombs in Syria to those who are profiting from the attacks in France. David Cameron invents a new form of economics to pay for us to bomb Syria at this week's prime minister's questions. Plus, bullied Britain - how the internet makes the lives of English children amongst the most miserable in the world.
