739. The Left Can Win with Joao Pina

We were mid patron only podcast when tortoise shack fav, Deputy Vice-Leader of the Portuguese Socialist Party, Joao Pina, WhatsApp’d to say that he was free. So we just added him to the zoom and it was well worth it.

Joao tells us how the snap election occurred, why he feels they defied the polls and discusses the very real threat that having a “nazi- adjacent” far right grouping in opposition means. We discuss the plans to tackle inequality and take a look at how his governments plan to tackle housing differs from our international fund driven model. As always, some great insights.

Note: we have a few blips in the connection in the first minute or 2, but they are all gone in the remainder.

Tickets for March 6th are available now HERE
