The NS Podcast #185: Autumn Statement special

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

*/

This week, Helen and Stephen are joined by Staggers Editor, Julia Rampen, to discuss the winners and losers in this year’s Autumn Statement. How much jam really was there for the just-about-managings? And why is that concept both so inclusive and so un-helpful? Helen and Stephen also discuss Tony Blair – the former Labour leader’s credibility problem and why the left must reconcile with its past.
