Woke Like This

Following the inauguration of President Joe Biden on Wednesday, Boris Johnson struggled to answer a question about whether the new US leader is 'woke'. On this episode of the New Statesman Podcast, Stephen Bush, Anoosh Chakelian and Ailbhe Rea discuss the debate that ensued, and whether the so-called 'culture wars' pack an electoral punch. Then, in You Ask Us, they take your question on whether Westminster can go on denying another Scottish independence referendum for the remainder of this parliament.

We'd love to hear from you! Send us your You Ask Us questions at youaskus.co.uk. You can follow Stephen Bush on twitter @stephenkb. Anoosh Chakelian is @Anoosh_C and Ailbhe Rea is @PronouncedAlva.
