Dr Steve Davies on The Big Questions

Steve Davies appeared on The Big Questions on BBC 2. This week’s questions were: is torture ever justified? And, is it immoral to cut help to the poor?

When discussing torture, Dr Davies argued that there has to be a line drawn where certain things are deemed completely unacceptable. In response to cutting help to the poor, Steve Davies argued that instead of giving more money to those in poverty, the government should look at ways to reduce the cost of living. He suggested policies such as the CAP and the government’s focus on a  green energy policy were raising the cost of living.
