Wonderful episode

Please listen to today’s episode of this, always interesting long form pod. Professor Thompson puts forward a well thought through analysis on where UK politics is, set against a backdrop of who she is, what brought her to where she is today. The comments on being terribly conflicted when faced with a political party that generally one can support, but that espouses certain political views that one finds abhorrent is both brutally honest, and food for thought for both major party leadership cohorts today. Having broken old party lines every vote should now be considered to be in play. Fabulous pod, thankyou both.
