The New Statesman columnist denounces the "immigrant-bashing, woman-hating, Muslim-smearing, NHS-undermining, gay-baiting Daily Mail".

If you missed it last night, here's New Statesman columnist and Ed Miliband biographer Mehdi Hasan tearing into the Daily Mail on Question Time, a moment that prompted whoops of delight from the audience.

The NS Podcast #176: Younge, guns and identity politics

The New Statesman podcast.

Helen and Stephen are joined by author and editor-at-large for the Guardian, Gary Younge, to discuss the findings of his new book: Another Day in the Death of America.

Seven kids die every day from gun violence in the US yet very few make the national news. Is there any way to stop Americans becoming inured to the bloodshed? The enraging, incredibly sad and sometimes peculiarly funny stories of ten kids on one unremarkable Saturday attempt to change that trend.

(Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, Gary Younge).
