This week, Hyphen assistant editor Husna Rizvi and former Labour councillor Shaista Aziz discuss Suella Braverman’s sacking and former prime minister David Cameron’s return to politics in a surprise UK government reshuffle following London’s largest Palestine solidarity march. The panel is also joined by the NHS Race and Health Observatory’s chief executive Professor Habib Naqvi in a week that saw a record NHS backlog revealed and the ditching of the Mental Health Bill in the King’s speech.
