The Cost of Christmas Yet to Come

On today's episode of the New Statesman Podcast, Stephen Bush, Anoosh Chakelian and Ailbhe Rea bring out the tinsel and baubles to discuss Christmas (and how the government has got itself into a policy muddle that is risking thousands of lives)! Then, in You Ask Us, they look at the latest phase of the Grenfell inquiry.
