The NS Podcast #180: Resignation, runways and Dr Strange

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

This week, Helen and Stephen discuss the decision to build a third runway at Heathrow: is it right that collective cabinet responsibility has been suspended? And what are Zac Goldsmith’s chances in a by-election?

Helen then shares her thoughts on the latest Marvel movie (to which Stephen was not invited). And you ask us: if Labour had the same system that it had in the 1970s, who would have won the 2015 leadership race?

(Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush)
