111: D’HONDT STOP BELIEVING: Fighting the EU Elections and more with guest Matt Forde
This week MATT FORDE – stand-up, ‘Mock The Week’ regular, creator of touring show ‘Brexit Through The Gift Shop’ and interviewer of political heavyweights on his podcast ‘The Political Party’ – joins us to get psephological for the upcoming EU Parliament elections. Should we embrace or fear a vote that Theresa May definitely doesn’t want? Can Remain parties co-ordinate, which side’s vote is most likely to split… and how does the D’Hondt system work anyway?
Plus how can a fatally split Tory party fight EU elections AND a leadership campaign AND negotiate with Brussels AND get Labour onside when they can’t even do one thing at a time let alone four? Alex gets glued to a train by a passing Brexiter and turns up late. Matt’s terrifyingly accurate William Hague and Tony Blair voices. And how would our guest’s beloved Brian Clough have handled Brexit?
“This is our chance to do a Ukip.”
