Afshin Rattansi goes underground on recent sexual violence summit held by Angelina Jolie and William Hague. But have they missed out some countries due to national interests? Bianca Jagger, a Goodwill Ambassador to the Council of Europe, thinks so. She says there are clear double standards when it comes to dealing with rape in Sri Lanka because of our own governments arms trade deals with the country. Roxy Music’s Brian Eno questions Britain’s involvement in Ukraine, Iraq and Palestine – does the UK have a right to expand NATO and will we ever hear back from the Chilcot Inquiry? Plus, Boris Johnson’s buying water cannon – despite the Home Office refusing to allow them. And Afshin gives his take on this week’s PMQs.

I agree with Kosala that RT and Afshin have not done the research to substantiate the rape allegations against SL armed forces. It seems that Afshin and Bianca Jagger have just copied Western media and Tamil terrorist propaganda (which the Western countries and their Corporate media encourage and support). Please read Shenali D Waduge's article on this topic and enlighten yourselves before trying to tarnish Sri Lanka and its armed forces. Please try to be a responsible and respectable media organisation and please do the proper RESEARCH FIRST before getting on the Western media bandwagon. We expect better from RT.

Hollywood film stars aren't noted for their opposition to the murderous chaos their govt. spreads across the globe - & the moral sensibility of any person able to stand beside & smile at that evil William Hague creature has to be in severe doubt.
