This week on Politics UK with Dennis Sewell:
Britain's trade unions are promising a winter of discontent if the Government doesn't change track over cuts to public spending. We ask Jack Dromey MP, formerly a senior figure in the trade union Unite, if the threat could rebound on the opposition Labour party, as it did thirty years ago?
Britain's future place in the world: modest, largely disarmed second-rater - or a nation with a place at the international high table? We speak to Professor Michael Clarke, director of the Royal United Services Institute for Defence Studies, Sir Malcolm Rifkind MP, a former Foreign Secretary and Defence Secretary and Julian Lindley-French, Professor of Defence Strategy at the Netherlands Defence Academy.
And British citizens snatched from their homes and transported to foreign jails without court scrutiny - have ancient liberties been bartered away in the name of European co-operation? We speak to Nick de Bois MP and Alex Deane, a barrister and director of the civil liberties campaigning group, Big Brother Watch.
