Out of the shadows

Playbook talks to Labour’s universities spokeswoman Emma Hardy

Emma Hardy was named shadow minister for higher education on 7 January this year, a month after Jeremy Corbyn announced he was to stand down as Labour leader and some three months before the party was due to announce his replacement.

To say that Her Majesty’s opposition is in something of a transition period may be to venture an understatement. There are those who would say it has lacked leadership for several years, but with Corbyn now head of the party in name only and almost six weeks still to go until the next leader is unveiled, Labour truly does feel like a rudderless boat.
