    One of the most basic requirements of a civilised society is that we feel safe. Safe to go about our business. safe to walk the streets. Private property protected - fraud detected and put right. And all of it achieved with a sense that those enforcing the rules - keeping us in order, warning us or arresting us - are doing so with our general consent. That the police come from us and are trusted by us. But something seems to have gone seriously wrong with policing in a wide variety of English constabularies, from the Met in London to rural Gloucestershire and Wiltshire - Cleveland to Greater Manchester. The problems in each force are different but the picture overall is of policing not working and individual officers often not up to the job -- or worse. Justin Webb speaks to former policing watchdog Zoe Billingham and Labour shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper.

    Labour has taken an about-turn. From Adam Smith's proposal for specialisation which saw the factory line reorganised so that each worker needed to understand only a small aspect of the production process, many industries now rely on access to specialised skills and resources that are commanded at-hoc in discrete, time- and output-bound chunks. This is the logic of projects. The workforce no longer dedicates itself to the making of a singular commodity, as it was the case with Smith, but bids for discrete pieces of work when those are in demand. In some industries, for example, in the art world, the workforce is also charged with building the demand for their work by initiating the project which would then employ them. The ABC of the Projectariat: Living and Working in a Precarious Art World (Manchester UP, 2021) by Kuba Szreder contributes new thinking on and practical responses to the widespread problem of precarious labour in contemporary art. It is both a critical analysis and a practical handbook, speaking to and about the vast cohort of artistic freelancers worldwide. Kuba Szreder speaks to Pierre d'Alancaisez about the artistic project, and the effects of projectarisation on workers' solidarity, communal governance, and the precarity of artistic activity. Kuba Szreder is a lecturer in the department of art theory at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. He combines his research with independent curatorial practice.

    Tears welled in the eyes of Labour MPs Jamie Strange and Rino Tirikatene as they spoke of how their respective mothers were urged to have abortions while pregnant with them.The pair were defending their decisions in 2020 to vote against decriminalising abortion in Aotearoa, explaining how personal those decisions were for different people.They were two of nine Labour MPs who voted against the bill - 37 voted in favour - which passed by a narrow margin in Parliament of 68 to 51.The strength of laws securing the right to safe and equitable access to abortions in New Zealand has come under scrutiny after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade and the constitutional right there, allowing states to ban abortions - over half have indicated they will do so.The ability for politicians to speak freely on the subject here, traditionally treated as a "conscience" vote allowing them to take individual stances as opposed to following a party line, has also come into question.National MP Simon O'Connor was forced by leader Christopher Luxon, himself opposed to the right to an abortion, to take down a social media post Luxon said "triumphalised" the ruling and did not represent the party's current position not to relitigate or revisit the topic of abortions.O'Connor was one of 35 National MPs who voted against abortion reform in 2020 - 13 of whom remain in Parliament - alongside 20 who voted in favour.Labour's Tirikatene, MP for Te Tai Tonga, said his vote on abortion in 2020 was "a personal decision"."I wouldn't be here today, because my mum was advised by her doctor to have an abortion when she was carrying me. It's a very personal issue, and I'm pleased that my mother made her health decision."Strange, standing aside Tirikatene, said he did not know that of his colleague, as he revealed his own mother had made a similar decision."My mother was also advised to have an abortion back in 1975. She didn't. I'm here today for that reason."So as Rino was saying, it is a very personal issue. It's also a very complex issue. It's certainly multifaceted. And I think we would both acknowledge that it is a very complex issue, and it's different for each person."Labour MP Jamie Strange says abortion is a personal issue, and has revealed his mother was told to have an abortion when pregnant with him. Photo / SuppliedThey both said they agreed with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's strong statements on the issue, saying the US decision was a "loss for women everywhere", and assurances that it would not be relitigated.Tirikatene said they felt they could still express their personal views on the matter, and if any legislation did come up again it would be treated as a conscience issue."We support the Government position and the statements that have been made by our Prime Minister."But again, when these issues do come before the House, they are treated as conscience issues. And so that's how we always approach it."Labour MP Anahila Kanongata'a-Suisuiki said she had always been opposed to abortion but the choice was "part of New Zealand's fabric now"."That's not what the Government is going to do, it's not going to change the law."Ikaroa-Rāwhiti MP Meka Whaitiri said her vote against abortion reform in 2020 was due to cultural concerns within her electorate. Photo / Warren BucklandArdern said shortly after the US ruling it was a "loss for women everywhere". She said people were "entitled to have deeply held convictions on this issue"."But those personal beliefs should never rob another from making their own decisions."How New Zealand MPs voted on abortion reform in 2020The Abortion Legislation Bill, to decriminalise abortion, at its third reading in 2020:YES:LabourKiri AllanGinny AndersenJacinda ArdernDavid ClarkTamati CoffeyLiz CraigClare Curran (no longer an MP)Kelvin DavisRuth Dyson (no longer an MP)Paul EagleKris Faafoi (MP until July 23)Peeni HenareChris HipkinsRaymond Huo (no longer an MP)Willie Jac...

    The government doesn't understand labour shortages in food and farming, and is putting the future of the sector in danger, according to MPs on the Environment Food and Rural Affairs committee who wrote a report on the issues earlier this year. The government has just published its response – rejecting their calls for the Seasonal Workers Scheme to be made permanent, and for the English language requirement for skilled workers in the sector to be lowered. Ministers say they've worked closely with industry to respond to labour shortages, pointing to the extra 10,000 visas added to the seasonal worker scheme this year and the plan for an independent review of labour in food and farming. Conservationists in Scotland are warning that the current bird flu outbreak could drive a seabird species into extinction in the country. The government has already launched a consortium of experts to tackle this, the largest and longest-running bird flu outbreak.  But it could come too late for Great Skua's on St Kilda, a series of remote islands off the Scottish mainland. A hundred have been found dead this season, with numbers thought to be down around two thirds over the past three years. Dairy Crest has been fined one and a half million pounds after admitting a host of pollution and odour charges. The company, which produces cathedral city cheese and country life butter, admitted 21 pollution incidents at its Davidstow creamery in Cornwall between 2016 and 2021, two of which killed fish in a local river.

His ratings are terrible and they're not getting better.” – Robert Ford  “The Government can run from the truth but they can't hide from the truth.” – Naomi Smith  “Johnson has tried to squash the freedom of the press." – Naomi Smith "It feels painful to look back on Britain's political leaders." – Minnie Rahman www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Presented by Ros Taylor with Naomi Smith and Minnie Rahman.
