The Rt Honourable David Lammy joins host Mungi Ngomane to discuss politics in the UK, his new book, and how he derives so much hope from young people. David has been in the UK Parliament for 21 years and is the Labour MP for Tottenham, Shadow Lord Chancellor, and Shadow Secretary of State for Justice. In addition to his captivating speeches, he is renowned for his role in securing justice for the victims of the Windrush Scandal as well as victims of London's Grenfell Tower Fire. It's no surprise that in 2018, he won both GQ's and the Political Studies Association's Politician of the Year. You may also know David from his work in spearheading the fight against Brexit, pushing for more equal access to universities, and demanding the decolonization of education curriculums and international aid. Listen to this episode to hear what sustains him in difficult moments and see why — not unlike all of us— his greatest fear for humanity is the climate emergency.
