Labour's shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry tells me that Theresa May has done little to help people struggling to make ends meet in Britain. She says the prime minister has been all talk and no action when it comes to tackling poverty, saying she is more focused on attempting to placate the warring factions of the Conservative party and deal with Boris Johnson's Donald Trump-esque outbursts and public insubordination.

All of this came on a tour round part of her constituency of Islington South, an area that has an unfair reputation for being the exclusive domain of latte-drinking, champagne socialists despite high levels of poverty. We discussed the housing crisis in her constituency and how the high levels of inequality impact the community.
