Examining his speech to the UN General Assembly about why now is the moment to really tackle climate change

This week, we analyse Boris Johnson’s trip to America, his address to the UN, his one-to-one with President Joe Biden and the health of the so-called special relationship. Joining to discuss are our political editor George Parker, and political and diplomatic correspondent Laura Hughes.

Plus, we’ll be looking forward to the Labour party conference in Brighton next week. Keir Starmer has published a 14,000 word pamphlet setting out his vision for the country, but is anyone listening? Chief political correspondent Jim Pickard will discuss along with special guest John McTernan, the former Labour advisor and sometimes FT writer.
