Times columnist and Tory peer Daniel Finkelstein is one of the UK’s leading political commentators. In this in-depth interview, he voices growing concerns about the ‘threatening and dangerous development’ of anti-semitism in the Labour Party, and why Corbyn’s ‘pretty lame’ response makes things worse; argues the EU Referendum was both right and necessary, reveals his misgivings at the ‘rising rift’ between educated and uneducated; the looming struggle for Conservatives after Brexit, and why despite everything he remains enthusiastic about the future for journalism.
