The NS Podcast #181: Momentum, members and McCluskey

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

This week, Helen and Stephen discuss Momentum and what its different factions might want the organisation to become.

Anoosh joins with the latest from the lobby: what are Gordon Brown’s plans for regional empowerment and what should we make of the court’s decision on Brexit?

Then Stephen and Helen look ahead to next week’s US election. Finally, you ask us: who is your favourite President.

(Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, Anoosh Chakelian)
