NS#235: The Circle of Boris

The New Statesman podcast with Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush.

By New Statesman

Helen and Stephen are joined by satirist and Private Eye writer Craig Brown to discuss the royal family and his new book about Princess Margaret. Then they analyse the way that Boris Johnson’s Brexit intervention was amplified by the right-wing media. Finally, they answer a vital question: will Corbynism dominate the Labour party forever?
