Ruaidhri O’Donnell, the former Labour staffer and head of the 2019 battle bus, was my guest on today’s show. I first met Ruaidhri when we were briefly working in the same restaurant in Belfast when I was at Queen’s University. Since then he has gone on to work for Open Europe and then found himself working his way rapidly up the ranks of the Labour party and into the offices of Jeremy Corbyn whilst he was Leader of the Opposition. For me this was a really fascinating episode as it gave me a chance to get an inside look at life inside Corbyn’s Labour and decipher how much of the rumours and accusations about internal sabotage, anti-Semitism, and the anti-Corbyn conspiracy in the media were based in truth and how much was just gutter journalism.
