7PM The Riots: As we all take stock of what happened at the weekend I want to ask how a repeat an be prevented and in particular how the Police can protect the poor shopowners who have been targeted again – not by anarchists but by balaclava wearing cowardly thugs. Are UKuncut the naïve innocents they try to portray themselves as, or something more sinister?
8PM EMA: The government announced today that the Education Maintenance Allowance isn’t to be completely abolished. Another U turn, or a wise move which targets money at those who most need it? And we also hear today of a study which predicts there will be 45,000 fewer students in future. Perhaps you think that’s a good thing!
