This week, Grace talks to Shami Chakrabarti – barrister, human rights campaigner, and former Shadow Attorney General under Jeremy Corbyn – about the Police Crackdown Bill and the wider Tory assault on civil liberties.
The response to yesterday’s protests in Bristol is a reminder that the liberal commentariat would have bitterly condemned the very movements that struggled to win the rights they now claim to defend.
As the anniversary of the WHO’s declaration of a pandemic approaches, Grace speaks to Eugene Richardson, Harvard’s Assistant Professor of Global Health, about how capitalism produces huge health inequalities – and what we can do about it.

In this week’s A World to Win, Grace speaks to former Labour Chair Ian Lavery MP and former MP Laura Smith about the party, the impact of Brexit, and the future of the Left after the pandemic.
One in five people have gone further into debt during Covid-19, while the richest use their assets to insulate themselves against losses – the end result is economic inequality on steroids.
