David Cameron is back in the politics of the United Kingdom and so is our need to talk about the UK. The last time we did so was one year ago and the name of the Prime Minister was Liz Truss. This week we talk about the reasons that have led British party politics to be focused around individuals rather than ideas and whether the UK should be an example of Western liberal democracy for the world…This podcast is published with the help of RAIA and edited by RAIA member Usama Ghanem but is an individual project between the Director of RAIA Dario Hasenstab and Balder Hageraats.

In de een na laatste campagneweek was de enorme hoeveelheid aan activiteiten en media-optredens van de lijsttrekkers simpelweg niet meer bij te houden, maar gelukkig heeft het Politieke Popcornteam versterking gekregen van niemand minder dan Peter Valstar, Tweede Kamerlid en tevens kandidaat nr. 26 op de VVD-lijst. We beginnen de aflevering zoals altijd met de popcornmomenten: een mooi duel tussen Timmerfrans en CDA-lijsttrekker Bontenbal op de redactievloer van de T., de epische troll-actie die de Britse oud-premier Theresa May uitvoerde op die andere oud-premier Liz Truss en het inhouden van de Jettengelden van de Jonge Democraten door moederpartij D66 nadat de jongerenorganisatie weigerde een bedrag ter hoogte van de Balkenendenorm te storten in de sociaalliberale campagnekas die momenteel droger staat dan de door Jan Terlouw geliefde IJssel in augustus. Ook kijken we terug op het tweede RTL-debat waarin Timmerfrans en Omtzigt schitterden door afwezigheid en dat dit keer weliswaar geen sprookjesfiguren bevatte maar wel een beestenboel was door het gekakel van de politici, het geblaf van Caroline en het getetter van Frits Wester. Ook de rest van het weekend was Timmerfrans niet aanwezig op de campagnetrein omdat hij per budgetcarrier naar Malagá afreisde om een speecht te geven voor het Europese congres voor sociaal-democraten, maar gelukkig was hij op tijd terug voor het traditionele krantje-maken op de redactie van de Telegraaf. Tot slot kondigde Geert Wilders bij Nieuwsuur een opmerkelijke verandering van de PVV-prioriteiten aan en vond Caroline van der Plas haar oude zelf terug nadat het BNNVARA-programma Khalid & Sophie een Budelse burgerwacht uitlachte.

Has the relationship between the civil service and politicians and their advisers been permanently damaged? Matt speaks to Lord McDonald, permanent secretary at the Foreign Office until 2020, former civil servant Jill Rutter, and Hugh Bennett, former special adviser to Boris Johnson and Liz Truss. Plus: Columnists Alice Thomson and Robert Crampton discuss Rishi Sunak's lack of political energy, British women's binge drinking habits, and why politicians are bunking off work more than ever before.

The Ministers Reflect archive includes interviews with ministers who have served under every prime minister between Margaret Thatcher and Liz Truss. They all faced their own challenges and had to deal with the problems of the era in which they served in government, but there is much that unites their experience of holding ministerial office. So what does it mean to be a minister? What are the most important skills and attitudes for success? How has the role changed over recent years, and between different governments? And what can future ministers learn from their predecessors? Tim Durrant, Programme Director at the Institute for Government Dame Angela Eagle MP, Labour MP for Wallasey and member of the Treasury Select Committee Marie Le Conte, journalist and author Ann Francke, Chief Executive of the Chartered Management Institute This event was chaired by Dr Hannah White, Director of the Institute for Government. This event was part of the IfG's Ministers Reflect one-day conference.
Inför nästa års val i Storbritannien framstår anrika konservativa Tories som ett parti bortom räddning. Hör om det historiska tappet i väljarstöd och om Rishi Sunaks svårigheter att tygla de egna. Lyssna på alla avsnitt i Sveriges Radio Play. Det har gått ett år sedan Liz Truss avgick som premiärminister i Storbritannien, efter en kaosartad och rekordkort tid i ämbetet. Rishi Sunak tog över med en tillsynes omöjlig uppgift framför sig – att ena ett sargat Toryparti och återvinna väljarnas förtroende. Nu, med ungefär ett år kvar till valet, framstår läget i Storbritannien som något mer stabilt, men splittringen i det konservativa partiet kvarstår och väljarstödet ligger på en historiskt låg nivå. Partiet gjorde uselt ifrån sig när det hölls fyllnadsval nyligen och bara var femte väljare anser idag att Torypartiet är kapabelt att leda landet. Så har Sunak någon plan för att rädda Tories undan en total kollaps? Disciplinen inom Tories framstår som helt urholkad och Liz Truss fortsätter att engagera en högröstad falang inom partiet. Hos Labour råder helt andra tongångar. Efter 13 år i opposition ser partiet ut att gå mot en promenadseger í nästa års val och segervittringen inom Labour är påtaglig. Vilken politik Labour går till val på är svårare att urskilja och de senaste veckorna har partiledaren Keir Starmer upplevt motvind för första gången. Han har fått kritik efter uttalanden om kriget mellan Israel och Hamas och frågan är om det är något som kan innebära långsiktiga problem för Starmer och Labour.Medverkande: Pontus Mattsson, Londonkorrespondent.

Keir Starmer is under mounting pressure from his party to back a call for a ceasefire in the Israel-Palestine conflict. The week began with the Labour leader correcting comments he made on LBC that Israel had a right to defend itself. But now, politicians to the left of his party are campaigning for a ceasefire. Is this something Starmer can support? Also on the podcast, James Heale speaks to Katy Balls and Fraser Nelson about more 'pestminster' scandals and Liz Truss on AI and China.

It's been a year since Rishi Sunak was chosen as leader of the Conservative Party, after the chaotic premiership of Liz Truss. In his victory speech last October, Sunak talked of a "profound economic challenge" facing the UK. A year on, we unpack the latest data on jobs and the economy with our Europe economist Ana Andrade. Plus, a warning from the boss of Centrica, the parent company of British Gas, that "the worst is still the come" on consumer energy debts. Energy reporter Priscila Azevedo Rocha joins us with the details. Hosted by Stephen Carroll and Yuan Potts.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting 3 local Members of Parliament, and Michael Gove, who has been a member of cabinet for 12 of the last 13 years. He has served 4 of the last 5 Prime Ministers (not Liz Truss). I was able to meet them all at a dinner thanks to parliament being in recess, when politicians return in Autumn to their shires and connect with their constituents. I talk about this, the ensuing lack of UK political news as all the 'great men' are 'out of town'. I then delve into the sillier stories that pack out the main national papers at this time before diving into one of my absolute passions: local newspapers.I mainly draw upon: Keighley News and The Craven Herald.You can e-mail me: AlbionNeverDies@Gmail.comYou can find me on Instagram: @FlemingNeverDies***Subscribe to my newsletter: https://youtube.us9.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=b3afdae99897eebbf8ca022c8&id=5165536616Check out my Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/britishcultureCheck out my online shop: https://www.redbubble.com/people/British-culture/shopSupport the show

This week Harriet and Producer Martin are grateful that this is a serious news podcast, because imagine if it was a topical comedy show, and they had to write jokes about what's going on in the world? Instead, they put on a live show to be just as serious as ever, in the company of regular guest Eshaan Akbar, MP (and possible future Prime Minister...?) Liz Truss, and Doctor Professor Jordan B. Peterson. Between them, they cover issues like Liz's alternative budget, Jordan's alternative university, and Eshaan's alternative career.

Do Labour's by-election wins add up to a political earthquake, and a sure sign that the Conservatives are destined to lose the next election? Or are they what you'd expect from a party that's been in power for 13 years facing difficult circumstances in both seats. Matt is joined by an expert panel including polling expert Professor John Curtice, Times Radio's Patrick Maguire and shadow cabinet minister Nick Thomas-Symonds.Plus: Columnists India Knight and James Heale discuss Joe Biden's defence of democracy, one year since Liz Truss left No 10, and could the next election really be as late as 2025?

W/C 2nd October 2023**Major Spoiler Alert**For this week's TFM I am going to bang on about the Conservative Party ConferenceThe Tories gathered this week in a disused railway terminus in Manchester for their annual get-together, and I was drawn like a moth to the flame. It was a shambles before they arrived, and it just got more shambolic as the week went on.If you want some kind of gauge to the preposterous-ness of the whole affair, the hottest ticket in town was to listen to Liz Truss defend trussonomics and her 42 day tenure of chaos.Everywhere you turned there was another one of them behaving like a fruit loop, making it impossible for Rishi to get any of the attention, even after he had implemented an epic train-crash of a marketing strategy to ensure he got the limelight.Lord help us.Stay safe.Can't Take My Eyes Off You - Frankie ValliTory Member EjectedPenny Mordaunt Pritti Patel & Nigel FarageJon Ashworth on Question TimeTherapy For Me (or TFM as I now refer to it) is a bit of an audio curiosity. It started out as a mechanism for me to clear my head, with the hope that by saying stuff out loud it would act as a little bit of self-help. It's remains loose in style, fluid in terms of content and raw - it's a one take, press record and see what happens, affair.If you want to keep in touch with TFM and the other stuff I do then please follow me on Facebook, Insta, Twitter or Patreon. Thanks for getting this far.
One year on from Liz Truss' chaotic premiership, host Ailbhe Rea takes on what remains a controversial topic: the role free-market think tanks really play in our politics. Ailbhe interviews the co-founder of one of these free-market think tanks, the ASI's Madsen Pirie, and hears his candid account of how they wield influence across Westminster. Then we dive inside the funding of these think tanks, with the man who beats the drum against so-called dark money in politics, investigative journalist Peter Geoghegan.And we reveal how close the IEA really was — and still is — to Liz Truss and her whole tax-cutting project, with the help of “Nina,” an anonymous IEA member of staff who witnessed it all.

Rishi Sunak has confirmed the Manchester leg of HS2 will be scrapped and replaced with transport projects in the Midlands and the north. But with the Conservative conference dominated this week by Priti Patel dancing with Nigel Farage, Liz Truss being treated like a rock star and endless tributes to GB News, has the Conservative party been taken over by rightwing populism?

Starting today a Catholic synod will take place throughout October in the Vatican to discuss the direction of the Church. Delegates will consider the way in which all members participate and decide the future direction of key issues such as the role of women. Emma Barnett talks to the former Irish president Mary McAleese about the issues facing the Church. Rishi Sunak will today give his first Conservative Party conference as Prime Minister – but his moment in the spotlight is under threat from the women in his party.

So is the future of the Conservative Party now female? Kitty Donaldson, UK Political Editor at Bloomberg News, and Isabel Hardman, Assistant Editor of The Spectator, join us from the Conservative Party conference in Manchester.

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt held firm on tax cuts, despite growing pressure from his colleagues at the Conservative Party conference on Monday. "The plan is working and now we must see it through," he said in his keynote speech. The idea of a tax cut is dividing Tories – with former prime minister Liz Truss calling for the chancellor to "axe the tax". Hunt spoke as news broke that the northern leg of HS2 will be scrapped between Birmingham and Manchester. On the Sky News Daily, host Niall Paterson is joined by our economics and data editor Ed Conway, and deputy political editor Sam Coates to analyse the chancellor's speech, Truss's calls for tax cuts, and HS2*Tell us what you think of Sky News podcasts: https://news.sky.com/podcastsurveyProducers: Soila Apparicio and Emma Rae WoodhousePromotions Producer: David Chipakupaku Editor: Paul Stanworth

The News Agents at the Conservative Party Conference: Day 1The queue to see the former PM stretched right the way through the Midland Hotel in Manchester. And it wasn't to see her apologise for the chaos she caused to the economy a year ago. No, these are die hard Trussites. They love her, hate taxes and want to rip up regulation. She's the most popular politician here - and that's a headache for the PM who still hasn't got his lines straight on major policy announcements that appear utterly muddled.

When you put a load of ministers and MPs in a conference centre for four days, without enough sleep, and very little natural light, something unexpected – at least for the government – always happens. So what – and who – should we be keeping an eye on as the Conservatives decamp to Manchester for their annual conference? Will Suella Braverman – or maybe Liz Truss – create a storm on the fringe? What should Keir Starmer be worried about as he watches on from afar? And is this really a sink or swim conference for Rishi Sunak? The Spectator's political correspondent James Heale and Robert Colville, director of the Centre for Policy Studies, join the podcast team for a special party conference preview podcast. Hannah White presents. With Cath Haddon. Produced by Milo Hynes.

Liz Truss is back. She kept a fairly low profile after very short tenure as the UK Prime Minister, but popped up again for a speech at the Institute for Government, arguing that she was right about supply side economics and the need to fight against 25 years of economic consensus. She seems to think if everyone had read Milton Friedman the world would be a better place. There's no surprise that Steve Keen disagrees with almost every point Truss made, but the law of averages suggests she must be right on some things. Phil and Stebe analyse the speech and look for some bits of it that might actually be worthwhile. Whilst, of course, dismantling the rest of it. Hosted on Acast.
