As the US president Joe Biden starts to turn around his poor polling figures ahead of the midterm elections later this year, are there lessons that the Labour leader Keir Starmer can learn from his Democrat counterpart? The veteran campaigner Matthew McGregor, who worked for Ed Miliband and supported digital campaigns for the Democrats in the US, talks to Rachel Wearmouth about what Labour could learn from American politics, and why the party also needs to look at countries like Australia and Germany.


They discuss the impact the Supreme Court overruling of Roe vs Wade, which federally guaranteed access to abortion, is having on US politics. Plus, how to make radical changes from the centre, and how Prime Minister's Questions is surprisingly popular among Washington DC politicos.
