Russian reports and EU summits: Politics Weekly podcast


The long-awaited report into Russian interference showed that neither the UK government nor the British intelligence agencies examined, in any meaningful way, Kremlin attempts to interfere with the 2016 EU referendum. So, which Conservative government do we blame for this lack of oversight? And will it force the current government to do anything different?

Meanwhile, EU leaders have spent five days at the negotiating table, eventually agreeing on how to spend a €750bn coronavirus recovery fund package. Jennifer Rankin gives us the latest from Brussels.

Plus, as the Green party for England and Wales prepare for next month’s leadership election, Peter Walker talks to the two candidates hoping to beat the incumbent favourites.
