Beneath the Surface with Suzi Weissman
Kevin Ovenden and Hillel Ticktin on the British Elections
On tonight’s program we take a deeper look at what happened in yesterday’s General Election in Britain.
Kevin Ovenden, blogger and author of Syriza: Inside the Labyrinth divides his time between London and Athens, where we talk to him today. Kevin has joined us previously on BTS in August to discuss Jeremy Corbyn and the leadership struggle in the Labour Party. Today we get his analysis of what happened yesterday and what it means in the immediate and longer term future. How long can Theresa May last in power, what happens with Brexit, and can Jeremy Corbyn form a minority government? And more.
Hillel Ticktin, Editor of Critique Journal, Professor Emeritus of Marxist Studies, University of Glasgow, Scotland, longtime Soviet/Russia scholar and author of numerous works on the USSR, South Africa, crisis and finance capital, joins us for a closer look at the bigger picture of the conditions that made this result possible, as well as an inside look at the Scottish vote.
