    Keir Starmer on getting children back to school and why he's the man to stamp out anti-semitism

    Keir Starmer on getting children back to school and why he's the man to stamp out anti-semitism

    You wait five years for an interview with a Labour leader and then two come along in the space of a few weeks!

    Sir Keir Starmer joins Christopher Hope for his first Chopper's Politics as the Leader of the Opposition. He tells us why he thinks the government needs to work with unions and parents ahead of reopening schools, how a half-empty PMQs works to his advantage, and why Labour shouldn't be shy about being patriotic.

    Oh, and how we should all call him Keir - less of the 'Sir'.

    Experts, politicians and conspiracies: Covering coronavirus

    Experts, politicians and conspiracies: Covering coronavirus

    It’s the story of a lifetime, but for all the wrong reasons. Christopher Hope pulls back the curtain on what it’s like covering the pandemic, alongside the Telegraph's Political Editor Gordon Rayner, our Science Editor Sarah Knapton, and sketch writer Michael Deacon.

    Are politicians using scientists to their advantage? Is public trust in the media holding up? And will the virus change how journalists do their jobs in the future? All that, and much more within!

    Fear, freedom and... fishing?

    Fear, freedom and... fishing?

    As speculation mounts about an easing of lockdown this week, what will life look like from Monday? 

    Sir Graham Brady, chair of the 1922 committee of backbench Tory MPs, joins Christopher Hope to talk about just that, plus how he feels a part-time parliament means he's relying on the media to find out what the government is up to.

    Plus government advisor, Professor Robert Dingwall on why he thinks the two metre social distancing rule needs to be reevaluated, and former Labour MP and chief policy advisor for the Angling Trust, Martin Salter, on why removing the ban on fishing could make the UK a happier nation.

    A crazy old people's club

    A crazy old people's club

    Boris is back and a new baby too! Quite the week in Downing Street. 

    Sir Iain Duncan Smith MP, former Conservative leader, joins Christopher Hope to discuss why the Government shouldn't treat the public like children and why he thinks our relationship with China should be forever changed after coronavirus.

    Plus Baroness Joan Bakewell, Labour peer and broadcasting legend, on why she's angry with politicians for treating the over-70s like "a crazy old people's club". 

    And former Labour front bencher Chris Bryant explains why he's not a fan of the virtual parliament, and the importance of a good bookshelf.

    To trace, or not to trace, that is the question

    To trace, or not to trace, that is the question

    On Shakespeare's birthday, mellow-voiced former Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox QC, makes a return to the podcast with stirring readings to raise the spirits. Don't say we don't treat you.

    And former Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt MP, tells Christopher Hope how the government could have been better prepared in their pandemic preparations, and why contact tracing is so important. Plus he tells us why Health Secretary Matt Hancock was right to promise 100,000 tests per day.

    David Starkey on everything but coronavirus

    David Starkey on everything but coronavirus

    Before the pandemic, Christopher Hope was joined by the UK's best-known television historian Dr David Starkey to talk about history repeating itself, which figure from the past he aligns with Boris Johnson (clue: it isn't Churchill!) and why he's changed his mind about marriage equality. And, since we're never one to shy away from tough questions on Chopper's Politics, we find out whether he puts water or milk in his tea first.

Essential listening

Living in Japan, this podcast helps keep me up to date on developments in British politics. Highly recommended.

Succulent

Could not ask for a raunchier 30 mins of lispy rambles. Chopper takes hold of you and guides you up the back passages of Whitehall to a place that would make even John Major blush.
