Are Labour and Tories in election mode? | The Political Fourcast

Are Labour and the Conservatives already prepping for the election?

Both Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak are certainly behaving like they are.

The Labour leader launched his first steps to change Britain, but will that help the party on the doorstep? And this week saw more culture war issues being flagged by Conservatives. Rishi Sunak wrote about his horror at disturbing gender ideology being taught in schools as the government brought in new guidance and rules banning classroom teaching about contested gender identity issues.

To talk about this, on The Political Fourcast we’re joined by Caroline Nokes, the Conservative Chair of Parliament’s Women and Equalities Committee, and from Labour, the Former Culture Secretary, Ben Bradshaw, who is stepping down at the next election.

Produced by Silvia Maresca, Annie La Vespa, Rob Thompson and Nick Jackson.
