Episode 669 of 864 episodes

As courts intervene to prevent Lula Da Silva from becoming a key advisor to President Dilma Rousseff, we'll talk to Luis Corvini, a reporter from Brazil's Uberlandia TV station, and ask him what people on the streets make of the move. Also, it's been 600 days since the last boat-load of would-be migrants turned up on Australia's coastline. We'll investigate if that means Europe should be learning lessons from the tough treatment given to refugees down-under. Britain's latest budget was notable for its lack of green policies. Campaigners say London is out of step with the rest of the world. We talk to Andrew Simms from the New Weather Institute.
