The NS Podcast Special: New Times – Future of the Left #2

"People in politics are either plumbers, who get things done, or they are priests who give you pure ideology, and there is clearly an appetite for priests"

By New Statesman

In this New Statesman podcast special we expand on our New Times issue which identifies the political, economic and philosophical shifts shaping our society. The series will run across six episodes with special guests giving their view on what lies ahead for the crisis in Labour, the future of the left, Brexit and globalisation. On this episode the New Statesman’s editor Jason Cowley and digital editor, Serena Kutchinsky, are joined by the former business secretary Vince Cable, the chair of Compass Neal Lawson and the Chief Executive Officer of the New Economic Foundation Marc Stears.
