Labour Leadership Special!

On this week's New Statesman Podcast, the first of the new decade, Stephen Bush and Anoosh Chakelian are joined by Ailbhe Rea and Patrick Maguire to run through the cakelike tiers of candidates vying to be the next leader of the Labour party. Is it Starmer's to lose? Can Long-Bailey break out of Corbyn's shadow? Or will we see a surge from a Nandy, a Philips, a Thornberry or even a Lewis?
