Episode details

Critics are warning that two new bills being piloted through parliament betray an authoritarian streak at the heart of government. One restricts the rights of protestors; the other provides a new legal framework for undercover police and security officers.

We hear from Clare Farrell, one of the co-founders of Extinction Rebellion, Byline Times writer Sian Norris, Labour MP Richard Burgon and Mike Schwarz, a solicitor with Hodge, Jones & Allen.

PLUS Michael Mansfield discusses the People's Covid Inquiry initiated by Keep Our NHS Public.
