Keith Vaz Trident U-turn, Airbnb in the Occupied Territories, and Depleted Uranium Weapons (E294)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on Trident, Corbyn, airstrikes, and demolishing homes in the Holy Land. We speak to Chair of the UK Home Affairs Select Committee Keith Vaz about grilling the PM at the Liaison committee, and how Jeremy Corbyn has helped change his mind on Trident. In addition, 10 years after Hamas won in the Palestinian elections, we talk to Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jeff Halper about Israeli house demolition and why Airbnb is advertising homes for rent in the Occupied Territories. Plus, we take a look at this week’s PMQs and precision weapons of the 21st century, as well as Britain’s depleted uranium bombing of Iraq in the Labour Party’s war of 2003 and the legacy of cancer, leukemia, infant mortality, and birth defects. And singing us out is Norman Baker’s The Reform Club with Give War a Chance.
