Going Underground: UK’s ‘diabolical responsibility’ for ISIS, and influence of their imagery

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the role Britain played in the creation of ISIS and other extremist groups.

Former MI5 agent Annie Machon says that when Tony Blair went into Iraq in 2003, he was warned by his advisers that it could lead to a rise in extremism, and the dangers of the UK following America’s lead when it comes to intelligence gathering.

Professor Julian Stallabrass looks at the effect of the imagery used by ISIS, and the wider media in general, and how it can influence people even if they know it has been manipulated.

In this week’s Breaking Views, we find out Amnesty International’s ‘mistake’, the RAF are fighting for justice, & crucially, is Turkey safe to holiday in? And allegations emerge that MI6 agents have been holding ‘secret talks’ with the Assad government.
