Show 245 - Gabriel Milland
Get comfy on the sofa because you are in for a treat. Gabriel Milland is one of the country's finest opinion researchers. After working alongside Michael Gove and Dominic Cummings at Education, he was Special Adviser to the Prime Minister from March to July 2020. Gabriel takes us inside Number 10 during the first months of the pandemic and his role in tracking public opinion during that time. This is a treasure trove of political insights, many of which may contradict perceived wisdom. A fascinating insider account of being at the heart of government during a global crisis, this is also a cautionary tale for Labour. Gabriel is a former Labour activist and he explains how Labour has fundamentally misunderstood the character and appeal of Boris Johnson.
