The Immortal Science of Marxist Leninist Cakes-and-Aleism feat. Kimberly McIntosh

January 6, 2020

Since the election result, you’ve heard all sorts of cries for Labour to get more racist. To discuss her recent article about why this is a terrible idea, writer and researcher Kimberly McIntosh (@mcintosh_kim) joins Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice @AliceAvizandum. What are ‘Labour heartlands’? Why is class in Britain apparently tied to what you or your parents were doing in the 1970s? And why does London not count as working-class (unless you’re a whippet in a flat cap)?
