Oxi, Oxi, No, No, the Greek people chanted in the summer of 2015 only for their government to then – perhaps inevitably – accept Europe’s demands for a brutal austerity and privatisation programme. Back in 2015 no British journalist followed these events more closely than Paul Mason, who has since become a high profile backer of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party.

We’ll also be looking at the tensions that exist between Britain’s Corbynistas and the Remain movement.
