A Homeless Democracy?
|This week’s show includes a feature exploring poverty in East London on Deprivation and ‘disconnected neighbourhoods’ and interviews with Rt Hon Stephen Timms, MP for East Ham, and academics Mark Fransham, University of Oxford & Dr Alasdair Rae recently appearing on the Sarah Beeny property special Best Place to Live in the UK. Alasdair is a senior lecturer in Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Sheffield.
We will also hear from charity workers in the housing sector and other ‘voices that are usually unheard’ such as those involved in political agitation and occupation. Discussions will include the group that occupied the building close to Buckingham Palace where around a dozen activists moved into a substantial property in Buckingham Gate – dubbed as ‘Rogue Embassy’ by media sources.

The students from Highgate Wood School got on with the job of learning the literacy of radio and immediately started making an engaging show of political commentary in their first ever piece of radio. Tune in Thursday and have a listen.
