Land of Hopeless Tories

Recorded before Germany pulled Brexit from next week’s summit AND before “mutant algorithm”. This week, after his feeble response to the Summer of Messes, is governing just too hard for our work-averse Scarlet Pimpernel of a Prime Minister? Minnie Rahman of the JCWI joins us to look at who’s weaponising the Channel refugees issue, and what the Dublin Regulation really means. Plus: the brain-destroying fake ‘Land of Hope And Glory’ row and our Clickbait Government. And Johnson trolls us by toying with loutish escapee from Australian politics and all-round big galah Tony Abbott as our “trade supremo”. 

  • “We haven’t heard anything from Johnson on A-Levels or anything that matters – but as soon as there’s a culture war story, up he pops.” – Ian Dunt
  • “The British people are in a constant state of shock and disbelief. They just don’t believe that really bad things can happen to them.” – Minnie Rahman
  • “Ideology is now conflicting with real life and it’s making the cultists look desperate.” – Naomi Smith
  • “Boris Johnson approaches being Prime Minister like one of these YouTube influencers who want to be famous without doing any of the things that actually make you famous.” – Ian Dunt
