Podcast of Ideas

Claire Fox, David Bowden and Rob Lyons discuss the recent elections in the UK, mad anti-Brexit arguments and the 'kid's strike' over SATS.

In this edition of the Podcast of Ideas, the team chews over Sadiq Khan’s election as London mayor and the implications of the different election results across the country for the major parties - particularly the way old assumptions about political strongholds have been called into question. With BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg being targeted over her coverage by Corbynistas, how should accusations of media bias be handled?

The team also discusses the claim that Brexit might lead to war in Europe, the controversy over SATS exams and the effect on wider society of claiming that schoolkids are too sensitive to be tested.
