NEW: A daily Bunker mini-cast for the duration of the lock-in, and maybe beyond.

On today’s debut edition, the emergency Corona Bill changes our rights in ways unthinkable in normal times, with extra ministerial powers, suspension of protections for mental health patients and “huge, swingeing powers” for police to disperse gatherings and detain people for testing. Ros Taylor talks to human rights barrister ADAM WAGNER about the grave implications of this necessary but daunting legislation.

“When we see major crises, societies tend to turn in and look for strong and decisive action. There’s often universal approval for restrictions on the way we live… For me, that rings alarm bells.” – Adam Wagner
