Irish Abortion Referendum

Fiona discusses the polarising effect created by the Irish referendum on abortion (currently a criminal offence in Ireland). She notes how this emotive and sometimes acrimonious debate has galvanised both men and women into action and the presenters share with us some compelling stories from the Twitter campaign 'Home to Vote', highlighting a demographic process that incorporates a wide spectrum of issues.  

MI6 Recruitment Appeal to Working Mothers!

Fiona looks at the latest MI6 recruitment campaign launched on C4, which has been designed to appeal to a more diverse range of candidates. Recent reports have highlighted a significant gender and ethnicity imbalance, prompting the agency to look at ways it can redress its stereotypical appeal to James Bond wannabees and fulfil its additional quota of 800 personnel by 2021.

Should the NHS 'mop up' our bad lifestyle choices?

Fiona explores the pressing question of our current NHS and whether it is' fit for purpose'. Should we be taking much greater responsibility for our health and stop relying on the NHS to 'mop up' our bad lifestyle choices and do we need to take a harder line and revolutionise the recruitment practices that currently exist within the NHS by introducing a degree of commercial realism?
