The oil crisis and Labour Party divisions (E292)
Instability in the oil and gas markets is among the obvious consequences when three of the world’s biggest producers are being sanctioned by the United States and others. Russia, Venezuela and Iran are all under varying degrees of economic siege. Moreover, piracy abounds on the high seas and tankers are being boarded and Shanghai-ed. It seems only a matter of time before economic warfare turns more deadly. Gaurav Sharma is an oil and gas market analyst and the very definition of an energy expert, so, we invited him into the studio to speculate on what might happen next.
The Labour Party appears to be tearing itself apart at the moment with divisions and accusations of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.

Kaied Omar Ghiyatha is the editor-in-chief as well as one of the few Arab officials in the Labour Party. So, we invited him into the studio to help us shed more light on the situation.
