EP 34: GE2020 Spesh 2: Crime and Punishment

As the general election campaign took off, the horrific murder of a teenager brought organised crime into sharp focus as an election issue. In this episode, we discuss crime and punishment, and how political parties approach the issue. We talk to Marcus Keane from the Ana Liffey Drug Project about drug policy, and Social Democrats candidate for Dublin Central, Gary Gannon, joins us in studio to discuss tackling the causes of crime, rather than just the end result. Also in this episode, we bring you our first Voter’s Voice – a young, professional, Dublin renter – and we digest the campaign news and bring Get In The Sea to GE2020.
