Welcome to the early access, ad free edition of the New Statesman Podcast. Every week the New Statesman‘s politics team discuss the latest events in UK politics and current affairs.
Can MPs ever be truly safe after Jo Cox and David Amess?
A week after the death of the Southend West MP David Amess, Anoosh Chakelian and Stephen Bush discuss how MPs have reflected on the incident, what might make a difference to the security of MPs and why some MPs have been talking about online abuse.
Then in You Ask Us, they answer a listener’s question on the New Labour era and whether there are any lessons modern day Labour could learn from it
