Description

Filling up on Labour conference, Germany elections and HGV news. Shadow cabinet minister, Andy McDonald, has quit Labour’s frontbench with a scathing attack on Sir Keir Starmer on the eve of his major speech to the Brighton delegates. He’s accused the Labour leader of making the party “more divided than ever” and breaking promises to members over working conditions. Adam and Laura are on the conference floor to assess how it’s gone down. Plus, Laura stumbles across Newscast superfan Jacob, who wangles his way onto the pod.

Also in a Brexitcast-esque crossover, Katya calls in from Berlin, where Germany's centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) have claimed a narrow election victory, telling the party of Angela Merkel it should no longer be in power. But the outgoing chancellor’s retirement is on hold for what could be weeks of coalition negotiations, with conservative Armin Laschet determined to fight on.

Today’s Newscast was made by Caitlin Hanrahan with producers Danny Wittenberg, Ben Cooper and Soila Apparicio. The studio director was Emma Crowe and the assistant editor was Sam Bonham. The editor is Jonathan Aspinwall.
