Weekly podcast: what’s the point of Prime Minister’s Questions?

May 18, 2018


This week Ayesha Hazarika is joined by Miranda Green, Financial Times deputy comment editor, and Tom Hamilton, former advisor to Ed Miliband, to discuss their under-reported stories from across the week.

Miranda raises the issue of rail nationalisation and why the public mood has changed over the decades, while Tom highlights the recent vote in Parliament against holding ‘Leveson part 2’. The panel also discuss Ayesha and Tom’s new book Punch and Judy Politics: An Insiders Guide to Prime Minister’s Questions, looking behind the scenes at PMQs and asking, “is it really worth doing?”
