NS#242: Fallon's Fall

Helen and Stephen discuss the resignation of Michael Fallon as defence secretary, and look more broadly at allegations of sexual harassment and abuse in Westminster. Then, they are joined by the author Nick Harkaway to talk about his new book Gnomon and the issues of surveillance and privacy that it raises. Finally, they answer a listener question: why hasn't the NS published the list of alleged "sex pest" Tory MPs?
