The NS Podcast #154: Referendum special

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

This week, Helen and Stephen reflect on the death of Jo Cox and how the tragedy has resonated through politics. They also take stock of the EU debate ahead of the country going to the polls on Thursday: what will be the referendum’s lasting legacy and will it hurt UKIP? Stephen reports on the atmosphere in Hull and George Eaton takes the temperature in Westminster. And finally, you ask us: what do we think the result will be? (Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, George Eaton)
