Description

Post-match political analysis from the Newscast line-up.

As the World Cup opens in Qatar, Adam is joined by a line-up of correspondents to analyse events on and (mainly) off the pitch.

Jack Murley, host of the BBC’s LGBT Sport podcast, talks about the decision for England and Wales not to wear the OneLove armband promoting diversity and inclusivity.

5 Live’s Rick Edwards, who went to the England game in Qatar, gives us his first impressions of how supporters are experiencing the tournament. And the BBC's Marianna Spring, who has been investigating claims of “fake fans”, explains why we should keep an open mind.

The BBC's Chris Mason and Faisal Islam also reflect on politics closer to home with renewed arguments over immigration and Brexit coming out of the Autumn Statement.

Today’s Newscast made by Danny Wittenberg with Cordelia Hemming and Miranda Slade. The technical producer was Emma Crowe and the assistant editor was Sam Bonham.
