The NS Podcast #223: Deals and the DUP

The New Statesman podacst.

By New Statesman

*/

Helen and Stephen explore what’s going on with the DUP: what’s the best response to new investment for Northern Ireland? And how long will May last? They also roam into the mythical worlds of Wonder Woman and Sherlock Holmes. Plus: you ask us: why has there been no final death toll estimate for Grenfell?

 

Quotes of the episode:

  • Helen on the Chancellor’s last budget: “Please never say Philip Hammond and the word ‘wiggle’ in the same sentence ever again!”
  • Helen on the Lib Dems: “They need to sort out what they think about stuff.”
  • Stephen on Grenfell: “I think in general there has been a failure of reporting in Grenfell.”
