The End of an Era

On this week's New Statesman Podcast, Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush are together for the final time. They discuss Brexit, the Tory leadership race and the problems facing all the major parties, before Helen interviews comedian Ahir Shah about race, politics and his new show Dots. Then, finally, in You Ask Us they tackle two questions: should parties trash their own records? And what's wrong with political journalism?
