Party, All the Fines? – with guest Emily Thornberry

With Partygate fines being dished out, special guest Emily Thornberry joins us to discuss Government scandals and sleaze. The shadow attorney general weighs in on Boris Johnson’s position, as it appears evermore untenable. Plus, we discuss the Labour’s future prospects, hopes for change …and the Tories eternally wading into the war on woke. 

“You can’t have some rules for some people and no rules for other people. We don’t have gods among us.” – Emily Thornberry 

“Of course the British people want to help people, but we don’t have a government that can step up to that.” – Emily Thornberry 

“We have to win so many seats back and to do it in one leap is going to be difficult.” – Emily Thornberry 

“You can be as radical and beautiful as you want to be, but if you don’t get elected, you’re no use to anybody.” – Emily Thornberry 

"If Labour isn't the party for the disempowered and marginalised, then why are we here?" – Emily Thornberry
