    LOCKDOWN POD #1 with MPs Rob Halfon and Alison McGovern

    LOCKDOWN POD #1 with MPs Rob Halfon and Alison McGovern

    In the first full PoliticsHome podcast under the coronavirus lockdown, Matt Honeycombe-Foster speaks to a range of guests about the impact of the sweeping crisis on UK politics, the economy and families.

    PolHome editor Kevin Schofield has the latest on the big row over testing, protective equipment and ventilators as the government faces
    mounting criticism of the speed of the rollout of crucial interventions.

    Then we chat to Conservative MP Rob Halfon about growing calls for a virtual Parliament to keep democracy running in a time of crisis, before the Resolution Foundation's Mike Brewer, Clare McNeil from the IPPR and Labour MP Alison McGovern from the Treasury select committee talk us through the likely economic toll of the Covid-19 shutdown and explain who needs more help.

    If that wasn't enough, Kevin and Alison give their take on the Labour leadership contest, which has finally come to an end. Can the new Keir, err person, in charge rise to the challenge?

    WINDRUSH: LESSONS LEARNED? WITH DAVID LAMMY & PATRICK VERNON

    WINDRUSH: LESSONS LEARNED? WITH DAVID LAMMY & PATRICK VERNON

    We are living in extraordinary times, and the coronavirus outbreak has dramatically changed the lives of most people in this country in a very short space of time. We’ve decided to start using the podcast to try to help you, our listeners, make sense of what’s going on - as well as shining a light on some of the other big stories that risk getting lost.

    So, starting from our next week, we want to open up our contacts books to you and ask experts, policy makers, MPs YOUR questions about the response. Get them in to us at news@politicshome.com. We’re also on Twitter as @PolHomeEditor and @matt_hfoster

    This week’s special episode, though, focuses on a big story that might get swamped by the unfolding coronavirus crisis.

    The long-awaited independent report into the Windrush scandal, which dominated the headlines in 2018 and continues to define the Home Office, has been published this week - and its findings are damning. Join us as we dig into this landmark report’s findings and recommendations with Labour MP David Lammy and long-standing Windrush campaigner Patrick Vernon.

    CORONAVIRUS & THE BUDGET

    CORONAVIRUS & THE BUDGET

    The coronavirus outbreak is now officially a global pandemic, with markets crashing, cases mounting, and even a health minister being struck down with the respiratory disease. The virus’s spread of course couldn’t help but over-shadow what was expected to be the big UK news story of the week, Rishi Sunak’s first Budget as chancellor. We’ll be digging into the detail of the Government’s response, asking why the UK is going down a different route to some other countries and asking whether it’s really viable for Parliament to stay open. Then: we’ll chew over the rest of the big spending Budget as the Tories tossed all talk of austerity to one side and tried to make good on the election vow to level up Britain.

    PoliticsHome's Kevin Schofield and Matt Honeycombe-Foster are joined this week by the New Statesman's Britain editor Anoosh Chakelian.

    PRITI BIG ROW

    PRITI BIG ROW

    Britain has been gripped by the coronavirus crisis this week, as the Government unveiled its big action plan to try and curb the global threat and Boris Johnson pushes back at claims he’s a part-time prime minister. Amid a problem that only seems to be getting worse, we’ll look at what the Government’s been doing; how bad things might get; and whether the PM is any good in a crisis.

    If that wasn’t enough, Home Secretary Priti Patel is under immense pressure this week amid a string of bullying allegations and the resignation of her most senior official, Sir Philip Rutnam. Civil Service World reporter Beckie Smith joins us to unpack the row and discuss whether blazing rows with civil servants is just the new normal.

    PLUS: Kevin is grilled on the future of his Twitter account as we take your questions.

    RESPECT THE MANDATE

    RESPECT THE MANDATE

    Boris Johnson has published the long-awaited opening gambit for talks on Britain’s future relationship with the EU - and Number 10 are trying to make it clear they can take it or leave it on that big ambitious trade deal.

    But is the PM really serious about walking away from the talks if there’s no progress by June - even if it means a big upheaval for business? Has he gone back on his promises to Brussels or does the thumping election majority since it was signed change the game? Is there any room for manoeuvre - or is Britain heading back into what we once called no-deal territory in the long-forgotten days of 2019?

    PolHome’s Kevin Schofield and Matt Honeycombe-Foster are joined once again by top Brexit expert Laura Hutchinson of Dods Monitoring as we map the battle lines in this latest trade war.

    PLUS: We get stuck into the latest developments in the very, very long Labour leadership race - and Kevin claims he has to go a ‘lobby briefing’ to avoid revealing his karaoke faves.

    THE SUNAK ALSO RISES

    THE SUNAK ALSO RISES

    We’d been led to believe this week’s reshuffle would be a rather scaled-back affair. But we were back in chaos-land on Thursday lunchtime as the Chancellor, Sajid Javid, dramatically resigned amid a bitter row with Number 10. Why did Javid really quit? Is this a coup for the Prime Minister’s top aide Dominic Cummings? And just who is Rishi Sunak, the man stepping into Javid’s shoes at the Treasury?

    Then: We succumb to the drive for clickbait and give our listeners what they want: chat about a Labour leadership data row. We’ll be asking what it means for the party - and chewing over the week’s developments as local party and union nominations close.

    PolHome's Kevin Schofield and Matt Honeycombe-Foster are joined this week by Nicola Bartlett, political correspondent for the Daily Mirror.
