Anti-Social Justice Warriors
What’s with the Tories’ crackdown on anti-social behaviour? And what’s meant to be so wrong with people hanging about in parks? Plus, with protests in Israel and France, the panel discusses the spread of such activity in Europe – and why it feels empowering to people. Jonn Elledge, a regular columnist at New Statesman and Big Issue, is this week’s guest.

• “We have a government that’s run entirely in the interest of angry older voters.” – Jonn Elledge
• “It’s like one in five people in this country object to all forms of fun.” – Jonn Elledge
