Podcast Ep. 43: Labour’s Anti-Semitic Meltdown & Elections Across the Pond

RD E43, Hillary Clinton, St Pauls in London, Ken Livingstone

An explosive row within the Labour party about anti-Semitism, the upcoming elections across Britain and the latest happenings in America’s White House race are the three topics this week.

Starting out we look at remarks made by Ken Livingstone, former Labour mayor of London, which prompted an examination of the soul of the party. Does it have a problem with Jewish people, or just Israel?

Next we summarise the many elections due to take place in Britain this Thursday, focusing on London and Scotland. Who will the winners and loser be this time round?

And finally, we look across at American presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, who are respectively inching ever closer to the Republican and Democratic tickets. Is it over for the Bernie bros?
