Brazil, Brexit And The Working Class

On the Pod this week Jim Slaven chats with Jonathon Shafi about his recent trip to Brazil, where he observed the Presidential election and its aftermath. In a wide-ranging interview they discuss the politics of the Bolsonaro victory and rise of the far right internationally, Trump and the politics of the United States, Brexit and the future of the EU, plus what all this means for Scottish independence, the left and the working class.

Jonathon Shafi is a co-founder of the Radical Independence Campaign in Scotland and convener of New Foreign Policy.
