Podcast: Hostile Environment

The New Statesman podcast with Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush.

By New Statesman

Helen and Stephen discuss the immigration controversy now surrounding the handling of the Windrush generation and analyse what Theresa May’s “hostile environment” policy could mean for her politically. Then contributing editor Mehdi Hasan joins from Washington DC to talk about Donald Trump’s extraordinary run of outrageous scandals. Finally, they tackle a listener question: how did the Lib Dems vote on immigration during the coalition government?
