On today's episode of the New Statesman Podcast, Stephen Bush, Anoosh Chakelian and Ailbhe Rea discuss the launch of Labour's local elections campaign and their prioritisation of increasing the 1% 'pay rise' offered to nurses. Then, in You Ask Us, they take your question on whether the Tories are starting to regret choosing Shaun Bailey as their London mayoral candidate.
