In this week’s News Roundtable episode, Chris Wright is joined by Labour National Executive Committee Member Jess Barnard, Labour & Co-operative London Assembly Member representing Merton and Wandsworth Leonie Cooper, Labour Councillor and Cabinet Member for Environment & Community Safety at Preston Council Freddie Bailey, and former political editor of the The Mirror, which made him Britain’s longest serving political editor Nigel Nelson.

What can one say… the conversation this week Labour through and through, just like the panel barring our esteemed regular commentator Nigel Nelson. The questions they tackle:

  • What does Keir Starmer’s Labour Party actually stand for in the wake of his first six steps unveiling this week?
  • Should Labour have welcomed formerly Conservative MP Natalie Elphicke into the party whilst kicking out figures on the left?
  • Do Labour’s plans for government and reform add up?
  • Will Starmer’s criticism over his position on Israel’s post-October 7th onslaught on Gaza have an impact in the general election?
  • Will the Tory attack on Angela Rayner and her tax affairs imprint on the electorate?
  • Will Labour build closer ties with Europe?
  • What is Starmer’s Great British Energy strategy, and will Labour also renationalise Water?
  • Will Labour do good for the North after Tory betrayal over HS2?
