31st March 2010 – Economy, Mephedrone and the U.K’s Relationship with the U.S.

31st March 2010

This week, the panel will be discussing:

The Budget and the Chancellors’ Debate

On Monday night, the prospective Chancellors of the three largest parties met in televised debate. How did they perform, and what (if anything) did they tell us about the future of the British economy?


The Home Office is moving to ban the ‘legal high’ Mephedrone following a spate of deaths. But is that appropriate, or the result of a moral panic? What are the implications for the broader U.K. drugs policy?

The “Special Relationship” with the U.S.

The Commons Foreign Affairs committee has said that the term “special relationship” should be dropped as a term to describe diplomacy between the U.K. and the U.S. Is the nature of our relationship with America changing?
