The legendary writer, satirist and broadcaster Armando Iannucci joins the New Statesman podcast to co-host four special episodes. In these shows, Iannucci explores areas of British politics that he believes are broken, and is joined by guests from inside and outside Westminster to discuss how politics could be better.
In episode four, Armando and Ailbhe Rea examine concensus: why do we find it so hard to disagree with each other without hating each other?
They are joined by special guests Paul Mason, the campaigning journalist, and Anna Soubry, a former Conservative MP who co-founded the centrist breakaway party Change UK. They talk about whether there could be a pact between the centre and the left, and if it really is much harder to get along in politics these days.
