Brian Cox on Braveheart Scots; Poetic anarchy & Arming dictatorships [E56]
Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the looming Scottish independence referendum with actor, Brian Cox. The Braveheart star says that the political rhetoric surrounding the vote shows that democracy isn’t functioning in the UK, and that the time has come for the Scots to show their voting power. Is being anti-immigrant on par with being anti-British? Writer and poet, Benjamin Zephaniah, weighs in on multiculturalism and anarchy. We look at what the mainstream media missed at this week’s Prime Minister’s Questions, and ask what’s behind the UK’s support for the Ukraine turmoil; plus, the Conservatives’ million-pound love affair with hedge funds. And, despite cutbacks to the defense budget at home, see why the government is keen to invest in democracy-hating governments abroad.
