    As the fallout from Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey continues, politicians and media outlets are making constant references to the Watergate scandal. But what are the real lessons of Watergate? What was Watergate? Why did it happen?

Protests rage as Temer stubbornly refuses to step down. Brian speaks with lecturer, journalist and author Arnold August

    With just weeks to go before the general election in the UK, polls show Jeremy Corbyn rising after he launched the Labour Party’s new manifesto. Steve Hedley, assistant General Secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers Union (RMT), joins the show.
