In a different universe of darkness lies the CSA scandal in which it is already clear, that a substantial section of our rulers were unspeakable perverts, preying on the most vulnerable people – children without parents laughably described as being in “the care of the authorities” who were abusing them. None of this would have been known but for a handful of dedicated courageous journalists. Foremost among those in this generation is Mark Watts of Exaro News of Fleet Street, London, the last outpost of investigative journalism.
And in part two we look at a world awash with refugees fleeing the four horsemen of the Apocalypse: war, famine, poverty and disease. The unluckiest take to the high seas in rusty, leaking boats. Others fan out across a Europe already buckling under its own economic woes. Thousands camp out in Calais hoping to hitch a ride on a wagon or a train bound for Britain. It is all manna from heaven for right-wing politicians and europhobes. Joining us this week is one of the few British-based journalists trying to put all this in context, Nabila Ramdani.
