Oh great news everyone, Keir Starmer has secured the lucrative Nigel Farage endorsement: the former UKIP leader is cheering on Labour for being to the "right of the Tories on immigration".

Sir Keir Starmer is a politician, who grew up in Surrey and worked as a barrister before becoming an MP. He specialised in human rights law and rose through the ranks to become Director of Public Prosecutions before being awarded a knighthood 2014. His progress into the establishment was completed when he was elected to parliament the following year and in 2020 he became leader of the Labour Party. Now if the polls are to believed Keir Starmer may be prime minister after the next general election. But his childhood was far from easy. Keir talks candidly to Rachel and Alice about growing up in a small pebble dashed house with six humans and four dogs, where money was tight and the phone was cut off. He shares bittersweet memories of early years overshadowed by his mother's degenerative, disabling illness and frequent critical stays in hospital high dependency units. Hosted on Acast.

The IfG podcast team are joined by John Stevens, the Daily Mirror's new political editor, to reflect on a bruising week for the restored Home Secretary. Also: the rearranged fiscal statement is looming. With the Prime Minister dropping plans to axe 91,000 civil service jobs, a new IfG paper sets out how to cut budgets with care. And is Keir Starmer on course for election success or is Labour in danger of a Sunak bounce? Hannah White presents, with Jill Rutter and Rhys Clyne. Produced by Candice McKenzie
In a very funny slapdown of the Prime Minister and his incessant attacks on the former Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn declared he lives 'rent free' in Rishi Sunak's head. But the Tory attempts to link Keir Starmer to Corbynism belie a basic fact: progressive policies - like taxing the rich and public ownership - are not just hugely popular, but more relevant than ever.

The Lib Dems have called for an investigation into why Suella Braverman is back in her role as home secretary one week after she resigned and apologised for security leaks, and a day after Rishi Sunak promised a government of integrity. Labour tabled an urgent question to ask the same thing in the House of Commons today. But the Home Secretary didn't appear to even turn up. Instead, it was left to the blokes - Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer - to face off at PMQs.

Connaissez-vous notre site ? www.lenouvelespritpublic.frUne émission de Philippe Meyer, enregistrée au studio l'Arrière-boutique le 29 septembre 2022.Avec cette semaine :Pauline Schnapper, professeure à la Sorbonne Nouvelle.Nicolas Baverez, essayiste et avocat.Béatrice Giblin, directrice de la revue Hérodote et fondatrice de l'Institut Français de Géopolitique.Lionel Zinsou, ancien Premier ministre du Bénin et président de la fondation Terra Nova.LE ROYAUME-UNI DANS LA TOURMENTE Avec la mort de la reine Elizabeth II, la Grande-Bretagne a perdu un symbole majeur de son unité. Au terme de dix jours de deuil national, le Royaume s'est éveillé avec une Première ministre novice et déjà mal-aimée, héritière d'un Boris Johnson qui est passé, en trois ans seulement, d'un triomphe électoral à une démission forcée en juin dernier. Les critiques sur sa gestion de la crise sanitaire, le « Partygate » ou encore les premières conséquences désagréables d'un Brexit dur, auront eu raison de l'ancien maire de Londres, lâché par les siens. La tâche qu'il lègue à son héritière, la très libérale Liz Truss, s'annonce donc considérable à l'image tant de la chute de la livre que du tollé a provoqué par le projet de déporter les demandeurs d'asile au Rwanda, le temps de traiter leur dossier. L'inflation qui frappe durement le pays met en avant les inégalités profondes d'un Royaume qui a vu la décrépitude de ses services publics depuis les années 70. En témoigne l'état du système de santé, la NHS, si chère aux Britanniques, qui s'est retrouvée au bord de l'implosion durant la crise sanitaire, faute de financements et de main d'œuvre étrangère. Le climat social est particulièrement tendu. Les coûts de l'énergie et les conditions de travail ont poussé récemment les cheminots et le personnel soignant dans la rue. Certains Britanniques se retrouvent déjà dans l'incapacité de payer leurs factures énergétiques tandis qu'un mouvement citoyen appelle à ne pas les régler, en signe de protestation. Une fronde dont le Labour de Keir Starmer ne parvient pas pour l'instant à tirer pleinement profit. Les échecs des Tories et les complications post-Brexit ont alimenté les mouvements nationalistes et indépendantistes du Royaume. Une Ecosse qui avait voté à 62% pour rester dans l'UE en 2016, a vu la nette victoire du Scottish National Party de Nicola Sturgeon et de ses alliés aux élections générales de 2019. Depuis les tensions demeurent grandes entre Londres et Édimbourg, notamment autour de la question de la tenue d'un nouveau referendum sur l'indépendance promis pour fin 2023 par les indépendantistes, mais désavoué par le 10 Downing Street. De même, les contrôles douaniers en mer d'Irlande ont contribué à la victoire historique du parti nationaliste irlandais Sein Fein devant les unionistes du DUP.Depuis la sortie de l'UE, c'est aussi une nouvelle place internationale qui est en jeu pour le Royaume-Uni, dont le PIB est désormais inférieur à celui de l'Inde. Le projet « Global Britain » présenté par Boris Johnson dès 2020, défend la vision d'une puissance britannique mondiale. Londres a déjà été récompensé de sa fidélité atlantiste avec la place prépondérante qu'elle tient dans l'alliance militaire AUKUS avec les Etats-Unis et l'Australie. Le gouvernement britannique s'est également aligné sur la position américaine en soutenant rapidement et massivement l'Ukraine. “Global Britain” veut aussi s'appuyer sur un Commowealth fort et soudé, défi que la disparition de la reine ne rend pas plus aisé.

The National Grid has warned that British households could face power blackouts this winter, if the energy crisis exacerbates. But Liz Truss' government has ruled out any energy conservation campaign. Why? And it's been a hectic few weeks at the major party conferences, but what do the voters really think of the state of politics? Lewis went to a focus group in Swindon to ask what they make of Liz Truss and her opposite number Keir Starmer. Polly Billington, former Special Advisor to Ed Miliband, and Luke Tryl, former special advisor to ex-Conservative minister Nicky Morgan, and current director of public opinion research agency More in Common are with him to dissect the results.
