Labour Party Conference: Was Labour’s message drowned out in Brighton?

Stephen Bush, Ailbhe Rea and Anoosh Chakelian host a live recording of the New Statesman podcast at the Labour Party Conference in Brighton. They talk Labour’s rule changesAndy McDonald’s resignation and whether the party’s message could cut through against a backdrop of rising prices and queues at petrol stations.

Then in You Ask Us they take live questions from the audience on Rachel Reeves’s Office for Value For Money, what can Labour learn from Germany's SPD, and was the media right to focus on resignations over policy speeches.
