The NS Podcast #177: Tory Special

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

Stephen joins fresh from Birmingham to discuss the highs and lows of Tory conference – from Theresa May’s speech to Andrea Leadsom’s comments on naan-bread. Find out why May’s promises don’t work for Helen and whether Stephen thinks the message will cut through.

You also ask us: where are the weaknesses in Theresa May’s vision? What will she have most trouble getting past her MPs? And how likely is an early election?

(Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush)
