Are Labour’s missions enough – and is a reshuffle ahead?

The New Statesman podcast team discuss the latest in British politics

Keir Starmer has finished announcing Labour’s five missions. Are they enough to get Labour into government? 

Vocational education, social mobility, and breaking the “class ceiling” – Labour’s final “mission” was designed to represent the party’s core values. Keir Starmer’s mission-based approach is supposed to give us an insight into how a Labour government might lead the country.

Anoosh Chakelian, Zoë Grünewald, and Rachel Wearmouth discuss whether Labour’s five missions will be enough to win the next election – and chat through reshuffle rumours.
