Tonight on The Huddle, Tim Beveridge from ZB's Weekend Collective and Ali Jones from Red PR joined in on a discussion about the following issues of the day- and more!

How do we feel about facial recognition software in supermarkets? Will this reduce retail crime?

The Law Society has come out against the Government's plan to scrap funding for cultural reports, claiming it will lead to limited access to justice. Is this fair? What do we think?

The average recipient of the main Jobseeker payment is expected to spend 13 years on the benefit. What do we do about this?
