  6. Keir Starmer’s Reboot Speech | #TyskySour

    Was Keir Starmer’s “relaunch” speech an example of astute political positioning or a damp squib. We ask James Meadway, the former advisor to John McDonnell, who proposed “recovery bonds” a week before they were endorsed by the Labour leader.

    Plus:

    • The Supreme Court rules that Uber drivers have a right to holiday pay and the minimum wage.
    • Boris Johnson pledges to send leftover vaccines to developing world.
    • New Home Office Ad targets partygoers.
    • Grenfell Inquiry hears from Arconic, the firm who provided the flammable cladding that fuelled the fire.
