RaW News – Do You REALLY Want To Ban Smoking?

Writing about web page link

Yes, it's almost that time of the week again and its another packed edition of RaW News Insight. Coming up tonightat 5…

The smoking ban saga continues – the original motion to ban smoking in the union has been altered over the weekend, to include cuts to society funding, opening hours and union events should the motion be passed. In other words, if you were up for banning smoking, you could be about to get a lot more than what you bargained for.

We'll have the full story on the programme, and we'll be talking to the people campaigning for and against the motion. Do you think it's right to alter the proposal into something that no-one will vote for? Send us your views during the programme – studio@radio.warwick.ac.uk is the addres.

Chicago vs Leamington Spa – Good ol' Leam's become a hotbed of vice and violence – well that's if you believe the local paper this week. Violent crimes are on the up they say – we'll be talking to the West Midlands police to see how you can keep safe.

Leah Betts – 10 years on Believe it or not, today marks 10 years since Leah Betts died after taking Ecstacy on her 18th birthday. The antidrugs campaign has practically ground to a halt in recent years. We'll be finding out if the Leah Bett's story changed your views on drugs when you were kids.

And we'll be going to Thailand to see how the country is recovering from the Tsunami almost 1 year on, and taking a look behind the headlines at the violent insurgences in the southern provinces.

This, plus much much more today, live at five, only on RaW 1251am and online.
