102 World Cup Politics

As the World Cup approaches its climax we talk politics and football, on the morning after England's dramatic penalty shootout win over Colombia.  What happened to the warnings that this World Cup would be like the 1936 Berlin Olympics?  Can we learn anything about German politics from the failure of the German football team?  What does England's progress mean for Brexit?  Plus much more, from Saudi Arabia to Croatia to West Ham.  With Helen Thompson and Mike Kenny.
 

62 | Where is the Centre?

Jeremy Corbyn claims that Labour now represents the political mainstream.  Is that really true?  Where does it leave the Tories?  What can Theresa May do about it?  We trawl the data to try to find the elusive centre ground of British politics.  Plus we ask whether mainstream regional politicians like Ruth Davidson and Sadiq Khan can speak for the whole of the UK.  If they can't, who on earth can?  With Mike Kenny, Professor of Public Policy at Cambridge, and Helen Thompson.
