Libya and the UK

Pascale Harter introduces personal impressions and insight from correspondents and writers around the world. In this edition, Nick Redmayne finds great pride - and "Libya free" a regular slogan - on the animated, anarchic streets of Benghazi. It's always had a reputation as a 'rebel city', fiercely independent of central government Tripoli - but after the dramatic energy of the revolution which ousted Gaddafi, who's really in charge of it all today? On the coast of Kent, Christine Finn sizes up the eclectic wares at a British car boot sale - and meets a whole new world of customers. It turns out that the buyers here are from everywhere from Kurdistan to the Baltic, while the goods on sale are from even further afield.
