Show 271 - *James Cleverly LIVE*

One of the best guests in the history of the show returns. James Cleverly loves being a Foreign Office minister and tells Matt about the realities of the job and how the UK is perceived around the world. Regularly on the airwaves defending the government, James is a powerful advocate for the people and causes he believes in and he talks openly about why he's so keen to be publicly supportive. He also talks honestly about class, race and the impact of the job on his family and, in a more surprising theme of the show, which ministers are and aren't 'manscaped'. It's a classic.
