Video: Chris Williamson’s Xmas special – looking back and ahead to govt

Labour front-bencher Chris Williamson’s ‘Week in Westminster’ series has been innovative, humorous and well received. His ‘Christmas special’, in which he looks back on Labour achievements, Tory disasters and ahead to what Labour members and supporters need to do in 2018 and beyond, is a work of satirical genius well worth watching and sharing.

Enjoy – and pay particular attention to the picture on his desk at the beginning and to the shout-outs at the end!

(And for the humour-challenged right, it’s meant to be a parody of the Queen’s Speech!)
