Bald-faced Lies

On this week's New Statesman Podcast, Stephen Bush and Anoosh Chakelian discuss the latest controversy around Boris Johnson, and whether we ought to be outraged by his deceit. Then, in You Ask Us, they look at Labour and Conservatives' deselection issues, before asking whether the Tories are doing enough to combat Islamophobia within their party.
