In our Easter podcast, we ponder why politicians can’t act like normal people. Could Jeremy Corbyn learn something from Ed Miliband’s all-new comedy persona? Plus we look ahead to the likely winners and losers from May’s local elections, and Paul realises he may never be able to go to the United States again.
The 9-month phony war is over, and Theresa May's break-up letter has finally been sent. We try to work out what's going to happen next, while looking forward to a world of over-powered toasters and old-fashioned lightbulbs. Plus, how many more jobs could George Osborne hold down at once. Don't forget there's still time to vote for us at britishpodcastawards.com/vote
This was the week Theresa May was supposed to activate Article 50. Instead, she announced a record-breaking u-turn on the Budget, got into a scrap with Nicola Sturgeon over Scottish independence, and saw the election expenses scandal suddenly become very serious.
When is a promise not a promise? When it's in a Tory manifesto, apparently. We look at this year's Budget blunder. Plus Theresa May's vindictive streak returns, and a surprisingly large number of references to Chorley. Plus, how you can vote for us at britishpodcastawards.com/vote (please do vote for us, by the way).
We talk through the implications of the by-elections in Copeland and Stoke Central -- and ask what it means for Jeremy Corbyn and the UKIP leader Paul Nuttall -- who've both been left with a lot to think about. Plus, why did the Prime Minister silently eyeball members of the House of Lords -- and is Donald Trump actually smarter than the rest of us?
