The political landscape of Britain has changed a lot in the last six years. You could be forgiven in early 2015 if you thought all the major parties were similar except for different coloured ties. With the surprise election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party that year, politics shifted up a gear,  the party of the working class digging deep into its socialist roots to make another Britain possible.  His election provided the political space for a eco-socialist vision of Britain.

The Labour Party, historically the party of heavy industry, now possesses a grassroots movement striving to make the party climate conscious. How did this come about? And what should the party do to achieve a transition to a post-carbon United Kingdom?

This week on the show we are joined by former Leader of the Labour Party and former Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn MP.  We discuss enfranchising the Labour movement, supporting workers in carbon intensive industries to transition away from them, and we ask, is Labour still the vehicle for progressive politics in the UK?
