ELECTION 2019: INTO BATTLE plus guest Dominic Grieve MP
As the Election Battle is finally joined, MPs Sam Gyimah and Phillip Lee are joined for a pre-poll pint by their former Conservative colleague Dominic Grieve - the Parliamentary giant who put his career on the line to hold back No Deal, and ensure that Parliament got a Meaningful Say on Brexit. Dominic Grieve is now running as an independent in Beaconsfield, and Sam’s standing in Kensington. How will these experienced MPs handle a General Election where all the rules have been torn up?
Plus: Is Boris Johnson’s election punt a gamble too far? Is the abuse that has driven many MPs out of Parliament really representative of what British voters think? What sort of election campaign are we in for? Who will we miss from the Parliament of 2017-2019? Who’s going to win the rugby? And Dominic eats the most enormous sausage sandwich you’ve ever seen.
“The Tory Remain vote is 4-5 million and if they want to Remain, they’ve can’t vote Conservative. It’s that simple.”
