Coffee House Shots

What could Starmer’s first year in power look like?

19 min listen

Picture the scene: it’s July 5th and a triumphant Keir Starmer arrives at Downing Street after achieving a supermajority and the Tories have only narrowly prevented the Lib Dems becoming official party of opposition. Whilst this may sound far fetched, it is the likely result when you take an average of the last week’s polls. What would those first 100 days of Labour look like?

Katy Balls speaks to Fraser Nelson and John McTernan, former political secretary to Tony Blair. 

Produced by Oscar Edmondson.

The Spectator will be hosting a special Live edition of Coffee House Shots in the aftermath of the election. Taking place on Thursday the 11th July – a week after the election – at 7pm here in Westminster, you can join Fraser Nelson, Katy Balls and Kate Andrews as they try to dissect the election results, a new government, and what comes next.
