What will Jeremy Corbyn’s victory in the Labour leadership contest mean for Britain and the Labour party? On this week’s View from 22 podcast, James Forsyth, Dan Hodges and Ellie Mae O’Hagan discuss this week’s Spectator cover on the impact his leadership would have. Would it be a disaster for Labour if he wins? What would the impact be on the Conservatives? Might Corbyn soften his views and become more pragmatic as leader? And will Labour’s centrists find themselves in the wilderness for many years, or rally round their new leader?
Matthew Parris and Theo Hobson also discuss whether Christianity is offering enough moral guidance on the migrant crisis. Should figures in public life offer their views or stay silent on where our responsibilities lie? Or should individuals be left to decide their own priorities?
Plus, Peter Hitchens and Fraser Nelson debate whether the Chilcot report should ever be released and why so much emphasis has been placed on the report. Will it reveal anything we don’t already know about the Iraq war? Is it time for an arbitrary time limit to complete the report? And will it have any impact on future foreign interventions?
