Paul O'Connell (@pmpoc), reader in law at SOAS Law joins us to discuss the post-Corbyn leadership labour party. Should people have been shocked by Corbyn's loss and the extent to which his loss was determined by Brexit. How Boris Johnson's exploited the schism and why he and Trump show how the threatening the populist right can be. Rebecca Long-Bailey vs Keir Starmer. Electability. The current weakness of the UK Left and what Labour didn't do under Corbyn. The urgent need for working class empowerment.
