NS#280: Review of the year in parliament

The New Statesman podcast with Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush.

By New Statesman

Helen and Stephen look back at the parliamentary year – taking in discussion of new parties, luxury communism and climate change – and decide it has been a good year for elephants but almost no one else. Then Helen interviews the author Laurence Scott about his new book Picnic Comma Lightning. And you ask them: should parliament cancel recess to work on Brexit?
