You throw the right wing out, the left wing out, and it’s centre-ground politics all about! This week Christopher “Chopper” Hope is joined by three stellar guests to help us get our heads around the political hokey cokey happening in Westminster.
First up, a new party leader looking to carve out a space in the centre ground. Nope, not that one. It’s the leader of the Lib Dems, Ed Davey. He tells Chris what he’s learning from doing shifts in chip shops, and why he thinks Boris Johnson needs to take a long look in the mirror.
Plus former local government minister, Simon Clarke declares that “Bojo has his mojo” back, following his initial concerns about some lockdown measures, and top pollster and author Deborah Mattinson tells us why Labour need to shed their image as snooty Londoners who look down on Red Wall voters.
