Priti Fly (if you’re a white guy) – plus guest NITIN SAWHNEY

Inside Home Secretary Priti Patel’s insidious new plans for asylum seekers – why moves that claim to reduce the use if people traffickers will actually increase them, and why the cruelty is the point. And special guest the legendary Anglo-Indian musician Nitin Sawhney joins us to talk about making multicultural music in an increasingly insular Britain, his brilliant globe-spanning new album Immigrants (which is very us) and how he got Andy Serkis to sing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ as Theresa May. 

  • “On vaccine supplies, we’ve sacrificed ‘just in case’ for ‘just in time’.” – Alex Andreou
  • “What Priti Patel is trying to do is roll back the asylum convention… She’s trying to make it practically impossible to claim asylum in Britain.” – Minnie Rahman
  • “From the optics and politics of it, this is red meat to the worst kind of libertarian hard right voters.” – Naomi Smith
