Who were the winners from Rishi Sunak’s Budget?

Stephen Bush and Anoosh Chakelian are joined by special guest former Chief Secretary to the Treasury and New Statesman contributing writer David Gauke to discuss how the Chancellor’s budget went down the morning after.


They talk about why the response was muted on Conservative benches, where the chancellor focussed his spending pledges and why, and whether Labour’s response hit the mark.


Then in You Ask Us, they answer a listener’s question on why Conservative MPs voted to allow the release of raw sewage into rivers and seas
