Podcast of Ideas: first thoughts on General Election 2019

Listen to the Academy of Ideas team discuss the elections results.

The results of yesterday’s UK General Election throw up many different issues. Why did the Conservatives end up winning comfortably? Why did the Labour vote collapse, with seats that had voted Labour for decades switching to the Tories? Does the success of the SNP in Scotland mean there will be another independence referendum? What does the result mean for Brexit?

Discussing these issues and more are Alastair Donald, Claire Fox, Rob Lyons, Jacob Reynolds and Ella Whelan.
