Naomi Klein is a personal hero of mine. Her books have consistently highlighted injustices and challenged the neoliberal status quo.

She told me that Donald Trump’s administration is using a ‘new formula’ for pushing through its agenda. Rather than the disaster capitalism she outlined in her book The Shock Doctrine, she says the Republican party is using Donald Trump’s ‘mental instability, out of control ego and general manbabyness’ to distract from their policies, which are ‘savaging’ environmental standards and already-inadequate financial regulations.

We also chatted about the failings of the Bernie Sanders campaign, what the Grenfell Tower fire tells us about the treatment of working class people in the UK and what hope there is for the left.
