Political Animal Special - the Paris Attacks.
With Europe witnessing the aftermath of the Paris attacks on Friday, Political Animal discussed what the attacks mean for us here in the UK, and impacts & implications on the wider world; whether the political and military responses to ISIS have been enough. We also discussed whether Leeds University Union - along with many other university unions and the NUS - are right in opposing the government's anti-extremism Prevent Strategy, and its effects on civil liberties.
This edition of Political Animal was first broadcast on 18th November 2015, with Tamsin Scott, Jonathan Green, and Jack Patrick, and was presented by Lance Casely-Hayford. With Toke Dahler speaking on the Prevent Strategy and Dave Tipping with the political news headlines.
