An Uncivil Disservice

On this week's New Statesman Podcast, Stephen Bush and Anoosh Chakelian discuss the resignation of Kim Darroch, the UK's ambassador to the US, and what it means for civil servants' trust in their political colleagues. Then, in You Ask Us, they look at Labour's new Brexit policy and, finally, consider how social care funding has hit the agenda in the Tory leadership race.
