Podcast: Contradictory Conservatives

The New Statesman podcast with Stephen Bush and Anoosh Chakelian.

By New Statesman

*/

Stephen and Anoosh discuss the unfolding story of the Russian spy attack in Salisbury, and wonder whether Jeremy Corbyn’s previous foreign policy positions will cut through to voters. Then they analyse Philip Hammond’s Spring Statement and the Conservatives’ contradictory position on the economy. Finally, they answer a listener question: was Vince Cable right to say that the Brexit vote was driven by racism?
