You Ask Us: is Starmer haunted by Blair, and how do you raise voter turnout?

Anoosh Chakelian and Freddie Hayward answer listener questions on the New Statesman Podcast.

Labour’s dominance in the polls draws obvious comparisons with 1997-era New Labour. But is it fair to compare Keir Starmer with Tony Blair? And what should the current Labour leader learn from his predecessor? Anoosh and Freddie tackle a listener’s question.

Also – how do we incentivise voter turn out? One listener has a novel idea. Could it work?

Every week, the New Statesman Podcast team answer two listener questions. Submit yours here.
