Redaction Politics Podcast: Labour Leadership Special – How do the candidates measure up on foreign policy?

THE Labour Leadership contest still has over two months to go, but the candidates have hardly been quizzed on foreign policy.

Anti-imperialism was a staple of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership – but which of the candidates will continue his ideology?

In our latest podcast, Redaction Politics analysed the records of Keir Starmer, RLB, Lisa Nandy and Emily Thornberry.

We first looked at Lisa Nandy, chair of the Labour Friends of Palestine – but what about her views on Catalonia?

Emily Thornberry, former Shadow Foreign Secretary, has given some top speeches on Saudi Arabia et al – but is her voting record clean?

Keir Starmer has remained oddly quiet, calling for a foreign policy based on human rights – is this too soft?

RLB has been called a continuity Corbyn candidate – will her foreign policy be similar?

And lastly, Richard Burgon, so outspoken on issues like Venezuela and Cuba – will he struggle to attract voters?
