This week we begin with former independent Bristol mayor candidate Tony Britt who hails from Knowle West and he explains why he thinks education is so important to the city. Tony is annoyed by the idea that anyone should have to pay for their education ans explains what free education has done for him. He's also campaigning for access to justice he himself has been denied after he was told he would not be allowed to see his daughter and he knows there are many others in similar situation too poor to be able to use the courts.

Our resident 'Chris Searle' Kevin Boylan joins us again this week to look at attacks on migrant and refugee boats in the Mediterranean Sea by pirates known unoficially as 'German Commandos' because many of them speak German and they wear balaclavas as they rob defenceless migrants of everything they have often dumping their fuel overboard too. They seem to be dealing with far right Golden Dawn fascists in Greece as well as the Greek coastguard but nobody seems certain where they are from. There seems to be no investigation whatever into them or real interest from the international press despite the prominence of the migrant crisis story.

Finally we hear from Kim Ekman on the subject of her new book 'What Can I Do?' which looks past the daily waves of propaganda on our TV screens and asks what needs to change. She has interviewed several prominent researchers on key questions like 'Does Voting Make Any Difference?' and 'If you could change one thing what would it be?'. She's interviewed by Daniel Green and then Tony Gosling gets her to ask him the questions she asked her 'truth seekers' which elicit some interesting replies.
