Carolyn Quinn looks forward to an eventful year in politics with Labour's Caroline Flint, the senior Tory backbencher Graham Brady and the political commentator Iain Martin.
What major political developments will 2017 bring at Westminster, and abroad? Carolyn Quinn discusses the prospects with her guests, the Labour MP Caroline Flint; the Chairman of the Conservative backbench 1922 Committee, Graham Brady; and the political commentator, Iain Martin. They're also joined by the deputy editor of the New Statesman, Helen Lewis, for a guide to the key events coming up this week. A social media analyst explains how data about people's conversations online could help forecast general election results. And as we approach the twentieth anniversary of Labour's 1997 landslide, Ellie Price asks some of the record-breaking number of women elected that year about what they achieved, and whether their parliamentary careers lived up to their expectations.
