"If you drop this shop in certain parts of the country it would never get off the ground" We hear from Dilwyn Jones of Hereford who runs 'Lock, Stock and Barrel', a hardware shop in St Owen's Street just opposite the town hall. Although the shop appears piled up with both new and second hand goods for sale it has the advantage of customers rarely being disappointed by Dilwyn not having what they want. When Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government abolished apprenticeships the market for agricultural ironmongery collapsed, Herefor Town COuncil didn't help much either with their plan to bring big shops like C&A into town, which soon failed. Faced today with competition from modern chains like B&Q and WIlkinsons few independent shops like this survive today, and he puts his survival down both to devoting his life to the shop and to being able to provide pretty much everything his Herefordshre customers require.

Professor Alexander Azadgan joins us from California professor of Strategic Global Management & International Political Economy to discuss the recent independence referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan. He is also a geopolitical analyst with Iran’s Press TV and Russia’s Radio Sputnik. He’s also a senior geopolitical analyst with Russia’s Katehon think-tank & Geopolitica think-tank as well as a senior lecturer with several top Iranian think-tanks such as IHCS, CSI, ADVT, PAYA, and Iran-EURICA.
