On this week’s podcast we examine the fallout from the decision to expand Heathrow airport, the ongoing controversy over a “gay cake” and the designation of Impress as a Leveson-compliant regulator – joined by the writer Peter Jukes.
After decades of debate, the cabinet has decided to build a third runway at Heathrow, prompting the resignation of MP Zac Goldsmith. Will this by-election be the end of the former London mayor hopeful, or merely a boost for the “surging” Lib Dems?
An appeals court in Northern Ireland has meanwhile upheld the decision to rebuke a Christian-owned bakery for refusing to decorate a cake with a pro-gay marriage message, prompting uproar from those who believe it violates free conscience.
And lastly, Jukes joins us after his stint covering the phone hacking trial and his more recent podcast exploring the Daniel Morgan murder in Untold – all to discuss the state of press regulation in the UK.
