28th October – The Economy, Lockerbie and Famine in East Africa

1st November 2009

This week the panel covered:

The Economy

Contradicting all predictions, the UK’s economy is still not recovering. Why is this, and what does it mean for graduate job prospects?


The police have reopened investigations into the Lockerbie bombing to try and locate those who worked with Abdelbaset Al Megrahi. Is this necessary, and does it justify Al Megrahi’s release?

Famine in East Africa

Ethiopia has asked for international aid to help it through the current famine. Has the media covered this sufficiently, and why has there been a reduction in international aid?
