Listen to our new The Division Bell podcast, hosted by Mirror political editor John Stevens and Express political editor Sam Lister.

Each episode will see John and Sam go head-to-head on a political topic – so listeners can expect a lively discussion!

New episodes are available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and YouTube every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the General Election campaign, with a special edition on the morning after polling day.

In the debut programme the pair clash over whether Rishi Sunak has any chance of recovering his campaign after his D-Day snub – and if the PM should stop flaunting his vast wealth.

John will draw on his unrivalled connections to Labour, built over a decade covering British politics. His agenda-setting scoops have seen him nominated for countless awards.

He said: “It feels like we have had an election or referendum almost every year since I started covering politics, but this General Election is set to be like none other. I’m excited to spar with Sam as we explore whether Labour is really ready for a return to government and if there is anything the Tories can do to cling on to power.”

Sam is plugged into the heart of the Conservative Party, from the decision-making at the very top to the latest plotting in the Tory factions.

She said: “The polls are predicting a Labour landslide but no one should ever take voters for granted and that includes journalists. I’m delighted to be going head-to-head with John throughout the campaign to give listeners a lively guide to what is happening behind the scenes at this election.”
