Jess Phillips talks to Hugh Muir

My Life as an MP

Hay Festival 2022, 

Jess Phillips, Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley, Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence and Safeguarding and author of Everything You Really Need to Know About Politics, lifts the lid on what a career in politics is really like and why it matters – to all of us. She tells the inside story of what’s really going on in government. But, politics is far bigger than Westminster. She makes the compelling case to Guardian writer and columnist Hugh Muir for why now, more than ever, we all need to be a part of it.
