The Democracy Sausage

As Australia's general election campaign comes to an end Hywel Griffith asks if, whatever the result, the entire political class has lost the respect of voters.

As Australia's general election campaign comes to an end Hywel Griffith asks if, whatever the result, the entire political class has now lost the respect of voters. And in India, the world's biggest democracy, Ritula Shah considers what the onion might tell us about the outcome of the election there. Emir Nader visits the Rif region in Northern Morocco to meet farmers who grow much of the cannabis that gets consumed in Europe. In Bosnia Katy Fallon watches migrants - desperate to enter the EU - "play the game"; doing what they can to cross the border into Croatia without papers. And Margaret Bradley takes a long look at how the property market has developed in Portugal. As prices have climbed, resentment has soared.
