Podcast: The Rebel Alliance

The New Statesman podcast with Stephen Bush and Anoosh Chakelian.

By New Statesman

Stephen is joined by guest host Anoosh Chakelian (get well soon, Helen!) to discuss whether there is anything an MP can do these days to get the sack. They talk about the cases of Anne-Marie Morris, Jared O’Mara and Damian Green, among others. Then, they address a listener question: what is a “meaningful” vote?
