First hour: news review with Conservative councillor for Horfield Claire Hiscott. Economics update on more fraud in the City of London, this time in foreign exchange markets, and George Osborne’s ‘decision’ not to split RBS. UNITE the Union and their protest against employers Ineos at Grangemouth refinery which was threatened with closure – intimidation or legitimate tactics?; Labour leader Ed Miliband questions why energy retail prices are going up around 10% while wholesale prices have hardly risen; claims Prime Minister David Cameron is a PR man for the energy companies, energy policy; should the Coalition be privatising the probation service? Government’s £1bn ‘Youth Contract’ branded a failure by government’s own advisers, Marina Morris’s voxpop, a health check on British democracy; who are the ‘permanent government’? the security services. City of London and Wall St; former News of the World editors Rebekah Brooks, Andy Coulson and the phone hacking trial but are they just the fall guys and girls for Rupert Murdoch? News of the World reporter Sean Hoare, who died last year after ‘telling all’ to the New York Times, would have been a key witness in the case, dead men tell no tales; Jimmy Savile’s driver David Smith, 67, mysteriously dies the day he was due to appear in court and give evidence against paedophile protecting BBC staff and police officers.

    I wait for this show every week like a football(soccer)fan waits for his favorite match. It is one of my favorite programs on the web. If not for me but for your local and uk listeners, Please turn your microphone down Tony. Your fine voice is coming out a bit distorted.

    Have yet to listen to the first hour today, however I always listen to your more local hour every week like the second hour. I read Conservative councillor for Horfield Claire Hiscott was the “news review” guest. I do not understand why you don’t fairly but critically interview tory officials as you do others from other parties. And you seem to hold back Martin when a tory is guest on your program.

    by the way, If you want to use a more private search engine, more difficult to hack by the NSA , MI6, et al here are a few i know of:




    http://www.yandex.com/ although it makes no claims of encryption, it’s servers are in Russia. on the other hand, perhaps the “spooks”(e.g.cia big brother)are crawling all over it. i don’t know
