Poland goes to the polls

Poland votes in a general election; heightened tensions on the Turkish-Syrian border

Poland votes in a general election in which the nationalist Law and Justice Party is hoping to hold on to power.

Also in the programme: The worsening situation on the Turkish-Syrian border, with Kurdish forces demanding help from former allies America, and saying if the Turkish offensive continues, they can't make guarding IS prisoners a priority.

Joining Rebecca Kesby to discuss these and other issues are Eunice Goes, Portuguese-born professor of politics at Richmond University in London, and James Harkin, Irish journalist and director of the Centre for Investigative Journalism in London.
