David Owen: Labour, Limehouse and “hubris syndrome”

David Owen became foreign secretary aged just 38, before going on to break away from Labour as one of the ‘Gang of Four’ and lead the SDP.

He talks to Matt about this defining moment in British political history, the legacy of the party today and whether prime ministers suffer from 'hubris syndrome'.

Plus columnists India Knight and James Marriott rate MPs on their TikTok skills and discuss politicians doing silly things for charity.
