It’s the English local elections post-mortem episode! You lucky, lucky people.
Joined by the New Statesman’s newly returned politics wunderkind Patrick Maguire, I delve into the results in and around cities including Liverpool, Birmingham, Sheffield and Plymouth.
We talk about the fledgling LibDem revival; whether the Tories really are as stuffed in Britain’s cities as it appears, and whether the Midlands might be an exception to that; and whether Dan Jarvis really could one day be the mayor of all Yorkshire.
We also, inevitably, discuss what, if anything, went wrong for Labour in London – and whether any party can win a national majority any time soon.
The episode itself is below. You can subscribe to the podcast on Acast, iTunes, or RSS. Enjoy.
