So, how did that Labour conference go? Did Keir Starmer snatch victory from the jaws of fratricidal defeat with that closing speech? Special guest Clive Lewis MP joins us to work out whether Labour is back on the road to recovery – and what was missing from the Conference. Plus, the German elections a row of light for the centre-left? And is it really so terrible if politicians call other politicians “scum”?“If you were casting hecklers to look mad and unsympathetic, you couldn’t have done a better job.” – Alex Andreou“Starmer won on a platform of sensible Corbynism. Now he’s changed into a New Labour tribute band.” – Clive Lewis“Labour’s choice is they can be the biggest coalition party under PR – or be in opposition forever under FPTP.” - Naomi Smith“The Conservative Party is the most successful party in the world – which by default makes Labour the most unsuccessful.” – Clive Lewiswww.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnowPresented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith and Alex Andreou.

Thelma and Tom Look Left - episode 15 with Clive Lewis
Thelma and Tom Look Left
By popular demand, we have our first return guest, Clive Lewis MP. First time around it was a great show, and this one is too. We explore in depth, the possible implications of the UK implementing Proportional Representation, or not. How can we change the electoral system - what are the chances of it happening, and when might it happen by. And what would this huge change mean for British politics. A big thank you to Clive for coming back on the show. Thelma and I agreed beforehand to give Clive as much time as he needed to say all that he wanted to say on this subject. It's a long show, because it needed to be. Stick with it, it's worth it.

'The hardest part is getting started, getting that first paragraph on the page. And once I've been able to do that, generally for me, my writing then flows from that.' Clive Lewis has written 17 books, so he's learned a bit about organizing and communicating his ideas. He writes about the things that mean most to him - this time it's the toxicity of the workplace (which is itself of course a microcosm of society) and how to create more positive, healthy environments. [Spoiler alert: it often just comes down to speaking and listening.] In this week's Extraordinary Business Book Club conversation we talk about the 'new normal' and the old issues at work, about empathy, diversity and inclusion, setting goals, getting started (and the difficulty of finishing), and the intoxicating power of words.
