Redaction Politics Podcast Ep. 10: Just what the hell happened to the Labour Party?

IN the space of just over 20 years, the UK Labour Party has gone from having a near-unassailable majority at Whitehall to being in its weakest position since the 1930s.

As part of our podcast series examining the decline of the centre-left in liberal democracies, our team took a look at Britain’s once mighty Labour Party – and why it has fallen so far.

Our Contributing Editor James Moules and reporter Mason Quah joined host Declan Carey to discuss Labour’s dire situation.

Is Corbyn to blame for Labour’s disastrous showing? Was it Brexit? Or do the party’s problems go far deeper?

This is the first of our analyses of centre-left party crises – we’ll be turning the spotlight on Canada’s NDP and the US Democrats in the next few weeks.
