‘Grotesque levels of inequality have to be tackled’

Wayne Farry

Some people say there are no good billionaires

Can billionaires and Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party exist in the same timeline? One of the party’s socialists, Lloyd Russell-Moyle, said he doesn’t think so a few weeks ago.

So what does the shadow chancellor of the exchequer think? John McDonnell has tried in recent years to soften his image as a hard-nosed leftist but in a speech today described the existence of billionaires as “obscene”.

Oli Dugmore asked the shadow chancellor if he wants fewer billionaires in the UK, whether the Labour party will remove historic student debt and what he thinks of Prince Andrew.
