    All (Dis) Quiet on the Westminster Front

    All (Dis) Quiet on the Westminster Front

    Liz Truss is back.
    And oh.
    So are those pauses.
    She tells Spectator TV she doesn't want to be PM again but she does want to promote her economic ideas. (You remember the ones that nearly melted the markets). We ask why there has been so little self reflection. And if her economic diagnosis might one day prove right...
    And we speak to Malte Grunert - producer of the world's most harrowing film, All Quiet on the Western Front about German attitudes to war, modern warfare and German history.

    Jeremy Corbyn on strikes, Starmer and anti-Semitism

    Jeremy Corbyn on strikes, Starmer and anti-Semitism

    Jeremy Corbyn’s time as Labour leader was one of the most extraordinary periods of modern politics. For a while he seemed like he’d moved the posts of politics. And yet now, he is a political ghost. He isn’t even a Labour MP.
    In this wide ranging and exclusive interview, Lewis talks to the man himself, at length about the prime ministers he knew, the biggest period of industrial unrest for decades, his successor, his suspension and the anti-Semitism saga which engulfed his leadership.

    The Return of Liz Truss?!

    The Return of Liz Truss?!

    Little birdies have told The News Agents we can shortly expect Liz Truss to re-emerge onto the political scene.
    She's going to reiterate her ideology and perhaps address some of what went wrong in those fateful 49 days. Don't think of this as another bid for PM. She may be wanting to offer a Conservative template for future generations - think America's Republican firebrand Barry Goldwater in the 1960's who paved the way for Reaganism.
    And on the subject of Republicans - the Culture Wars in the US are back with a vengeance. Donald Trump is talking transgender, Ron DeSantis is taking on race.

    Full-on, dirty political gossip

    Full-on, dirty political gossip

    A Labour MP has put the cat amongst the pigeons by calling Israel's government 'fascist' in the House of Commons.
    She's been hauled in front of Keir Starmer. Watch this space. We'll be talking about the rising tensions and indeed violence in Israel - but we also wanted to take you behind the scenes to some of the briefings we have been hearing about those Dominic Raab bullying allegations and Boris Johnson's stately trip to the USA.

    Is the UK regretting Brexit?

    Is the UK regretting Brexit?

    Brexit is three years old. And like a raging toddler after a missed lunchtime nap it's kicking and screaming its way through our national consciousness creating chaos as it goes. New polls suggest a sizeable proportion of those who voted for Brexit now regret it. What do those who created the Brexit deal make of it now? We talk at length to Lord David Frost - architect of the Northern Ireland Protocol and Chief Brexit Negotiator about why he still believes in it.

    Are the Tories suffering from 'Long Boris'?

    Are the Tories suffering from 'Long Boris'?

    New polls show more bad news for Rishi Sunak less than a day after his decisive action to sack his ministerial-code breaking Conservative Party Chair, Nadhim Zahawi. Why can't the PM catch a break? And is the Zahawi saga over - or is there more to come out?
    We speak to former Chief of Staff at No.10 Gavin Barwell about what's happening at Tory HQ.
    And, who do you trust more: Boris Johnson, or the Kremlin?

Excellent

Varied, well-informed, with interesting guests - perfect news round-up.

politics-sucks ,

Bit cozy, but a good political review

Get the sense the presenters are overly fond of themselves - lacks a bit of grit. But worth a listen.
