Will 'Tough on Terror' Backfire? (with (Florence Eshalomi MP)
Newly-elected Labour MP Florence Eshalomi tells Bloomberg Westminster's Sebastian Salek and Caroline Hepker the Prime Minister's plan for tougher terrorism sentencing is a knee-jerk reaction that will land the government in trouble. She says the Labour leadership is about getting the most electable candidate - even if it's not a woman. But have the membership learnt their lesson? Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at Queen Mary University, shares his research on what qualities Labour members want in their new leader.
