108. John McDonnell on Keir Starmer, Labour's lack of vision - and what now for the left.

The Owen Jones Podcast

After Labour narrowly held Batley & Spen in the recent by-election, former Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell talks to me about how the party is losing voters who stuck with it in 2019, let alone failing to win over new supporters; how Muslim Labour voters feel utterly betrayed and disillusioned; how the Tories have been allowed to get away with their catastrophic handling of COVID-19, and Labour aren't setting out a clear vision; whether the left is about to be crushed by the leadership, whether Peter Mandelson is running the party - and what next for the left.Help us take on the right-wing media here: https://patreon.com/owenjones84 Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/the-owen-jones-podcast.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Thelma and Tom Look Left - episode 10 with John McDonnell

Thelma and Tom Look Left

Well, can you believe it, we've made it to Episode 10 and to celebrate the occasion, we've come up with a really good podcast (to be fair, they've all been pretty good haven't they).  It was such a pleasure meeting and talking with John McDonnell, one of the elders of Left wing politics in the UK. So much knowledge, so much perspective, so much honesty and integrity, but beyond all that, such a genuinely nice person. We covered a lot of ground, including a stunning description of life as a constituency MP, John's optimistic future for the Left, and most importantly, how his lessons on the trombone are coming along. All good stuff! Thanks again to Hurricane for the production work, and also for the added excellent special intro music for our guest. You are really appreciated Huzza, by both me and Thelma, and also by our listeners. If you enjoy listening to this podcast please subscribe, share, and tell your friends. Thank you.
