The View from 22: Get out of jail free and Cameron’s EU speech

24 January 2013

How broken is the British criminal justice system? In this week’s View from 22 podcast, Fraser Nelson and Rory Geoghegan, research fellow at Policy Exchange, explain the rehabilitation game and the cover up masterminded by our political class to hide the truth about how we dole out justice. Why is the government so keen on using electronic tagging? And does it work? Why are they deliberately fudging statistics to hide the real picture of reoffending? We also examine what an actual bobby on the beat thinks about the current policy of more cuts and more tagging?

We’re also delighted to be joined by the New Statesman’s political editor Rafael Behr, who went head to head with our own James Forsyth on yesterday’s EU speech. Listen in to hear two of the most well-connected people in Westminster reveal the real story behind what David Cameron and Ed Miliband said yesterday. James reveals Labour spinners were on the prowl to add caveats to Miliband’s position as soon as he finished PMQs, while Rafael suggested Miliband is relying on a major EU upheaval to trigger an early referendum. Plus: we discuss Obama’s second inauguration. Find out which member of the Spectator team is a Beyoncé fan and why they aren’t bothered about the miming scandal
