This week we try to attribute blame for recent transport accidents (before learning better not to), talk to Robert Llewellyn about electric cars, find out about the latest controversy with the DSM5 psychiatry bible, as well as discover what’s going on with the banks, why we should perhaps forgive Michael Gove (!) and why we did actually land on the moon after all.
