The biggest cuts programme in British history. Chinese government announces privatisation of state banks (we hear later how this may be linked to last week's 'coup attempt'). Serious Fraud Office (SFO)'s outgoing director Richard Alderman criticises lack of funding while the SFO brings in more money (£50m) than it costs to fund (£32m), he also wants prosecution of bankers for reckless running of Britain's financial institutions. Director of Public Prosecutions Kier Starmer appears at the Leveson enquiry and explains how former Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner John Yates resisted investigating the News Of The World phone hacking enquiry. Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA)'s secret Project Riverside exposes corrupt Metropolitan police detectives who helped private investigators delete evidence in live cases, reveal names of witnesses to criminals and delete criminal records on the police national computer. Tax Credit changes which take effect today mean over 200,000 low-paid families will be up to £4,500 worse off anually, plus another 800,000 will lose all their child tax credits forcing them into poverty and conducting a cynical form of social engineering by setting the low-paid against the unemployed. Proposals for a UK citizen's income from the Green Party. Royal British Legion call Ken Clarke's secret inquest plan 'monstrous' and our guest calls them 'grotesque'. How deep does government treachery go? Is Conservative Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary Ken Clarke a secret Bilderberg quisling himself? As May's referendum to decide on an elected Bristol mayor approaches we hear views from the newly launched campaigns both for (yes campaign) and against (no campaign). But is this a distraction? Are we going through a crisis in political representation? Do voters feel as if everything they say is ignored anyway and that the three main parties are really wings of a one-party-state controlled by the City? Doctors in Bath dismiss concerns about private health links despite also running a private healthcare firm that stands to directly benefit. NHS 'Fairness Tsar' Lord Carter of Coles urged by doctors to quit over 'conflict of interest' following his £800k payment from U.S. private health giant & his connections with criminals. Local newspaper The Clevedon Mercury closes after 150 years of publication despite Northcliffe newspapers making annual profit of £17m. Northcliffe has a monopoly owning virtually all news publications in the region so is closing local papers in the hope that people will buy their regional Western Daily Press. News review with Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union's National Vice Chair John McInally.
