Helen and Stephen discuss the row over Jeremy Corbyn’s attendance at a 2014 wreath-laying event in Tunis and what it tells us about the current internal state of the Labour Party. Then, for this week’s “anything but Brexit section”, they are joined by schools expert Laura McInerney to talk about the UK’s teacher shortage and why excluded pupils tend to be overlooked by policymakers.
