All Eyes On The Speaker

Listen on

Episode notes

We're joined by Director of the Project on Center-Left Renewal at the Progressive Policy Institute Claire Ainsley, who was policy director to Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, to debrief on a chaotic week in Westminster and look ahead to what might come next. Did the last seven days descend into a worst case scenario for the Labour Party, or will they be feeling it could have gone worse? How might the upcoming by-election in Rochdale play out, and what does it mean? And we also take a look ahead to next week's Spring Budget and whether tax cuts are on the horizon, and if we even want them.
