House of comments: strivers vs shirkers

By Emma.

Episode 40 of the House of Comments podcast “Strivers vs Skivers” was recorded yesterday evening and is out today. This week myself and Mark Thompson discuss the Chancellor’s Autumn statement and try to work out who the strivers and skivers are, whether Starbucks are a fair target for tax protests, pluralism with respect to the new “Labour for Democracy” movement and speculate on how the government will respond to the Home Affairs Select Committee report on drug policy.
