Andrew Marr: To succeed, Starmer must upset a lot of people

It’s the last week of the campaign and Hannah Barnes, associate editor, is joined by political editor Andrew Marr, and political correspondent Freddie Hayward.

As well as looking at what’s happening on our own shores, the team also discuss the election prospects across the channel with the success of the right yesterday in France, and across the pond with the widespread trepidation around Biden’s future in US government.
