The NS Podcast #173: Mandates, minorities and the Moreno scale

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

This week, Helen and Stephen review Labour’s pre-conference predicament: will Corbyn be elected with a bigger mandate than last time? They also explore why Labour’s support increases when people see themselves as British rather than English. George joins from the Liberal Democrat conference in Brighton with thoughts on Tim Farron. And you ask us about the US election: would Bernie have done better?

(Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, George Eaton)
