In our seventh Wednesday Night Fightback, Michael Taylor and William Clouston discuss the growing tendency for politicians to use coercion rather than persuasion.

William and Michael ask whether this approach can ever be justified.
Due to the Easter break, this episode was recorded before we heard the good news that the Worker Protection Bill has been shelved.
