Labour's O-turn

On this week's New Statesman Podcast, Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush discuss Labour's double reverse ferret on the issue of no-confidencing Theresa May's government. In You Ask Us they tackle the question of whether ministers who resign from the cabinet should be allowed to rejoin in the future. And, finally, Helen is joined by Cariad Lloyd, co-writer of the Lyric Hammersmith's 2018 panto, Dick Whittington, to discuss a very British institution.
