Secrets of the Spin Doctors: Part One

Matt Chorley is joined by three former spin doctors for a two part special on the reality behind the images they helped to create.

On the Panel:
Jo Tanner worked on two Boris Johnson mayoral campaigns,
Lord Wood of Anfield spent a decade advising Gordon Brown before running Ed Miliband's leadership campaign, and James Holt spent seven years spinning for the Lib Dems, including as head of government communications for Nick Clegg in the coalition.

They debate whether a backlash against spin led to the rise of Trump and Brexit and is Twitter a help or a hindrance for today's politicians? Including memories of the best twitter gaffs from years past. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
