Episode notes

Alex Thomas, programme director at the Institute for Government, Dr Michelle Clement, researcher in residence at Number 10, and Hugh Bennett, a former Downing Street special adviser, join Alain Tolhurst from PoliticsHome to talk about the problem at the centre of our politics, with Prime Ministers unable to deliver on their ambitions, and whether the three most powerful departments; Number 10, the Cabinet Office and the Treasury, are wrongly configured.
