The Rest Is Politics


Leaving office, a Labour Scotland, and what's the point of Davos?

What do Rory, Mark Zuckerberg and Saif Gaddafi all have in common? Will we see a Labour revival in Scotland? Why haven't the CPS followed up over lockdown parties in Downing Street? 

Rory and Alastair answer these questions and discuss the role social media played in Jacinda Ardern's resignation, the current situation in Haiti, and cultural recommendations for the week.


Have you heard this week's episode of Leading, where Alastair interviews Marina Litvinenko, widow of Alexander Litvinenko, the former Russian spy poisoned by the Putin regime?
