Ipsos MORI Politics + Society podcast. New COVID restrictions and Starmer’s first conference speech

September 24, 2020

On this week's Ipsos MORI Politics & Society podcast, Keiran Pedley is joined by Katy Balls, Deputy Political Editor of The Spectator and Ben Walker, Data Journalist at the New Statesman and founder of the Britain Elects website.

The team discuss the fallout from new COVID restrictions announced by the government this week – and what the public think of them as well as reaction to Keir Starmer’s first conference speech as Labour leader and how he polls versus Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

 

Note for listeners: Polling Matters will return in its original format soon but for now Keiran will post Ipsos MORI Politics + Society podcasts here as well as on the Ipsos feed - the content is very similar to what listeners are used to from Polling Matters.
