This edition of the podcast looks at the ‘Woolwich murder’, the killing of British soldier Lee Rigby in May this year. I discuss the context of this murder as well as an associated killing three weeks earlier that got very little press attention. I detail how the alleged culprits of the Woolwich murder and the victim were predicted on BBC television years ahead of time with uncanny accuracy. I round off by discussing how we could see the murder and the reaction to it as part of a strategy of tension playing out in Britain in 2013.
