Has The Lobby Lost It?

The Lobby is the group of journalists who have special access at Westminster and cover the daily twists and turns of British politics.

Have they become hooked on political drama and bringing down ministers at the expense of covering issues of substance?

Matt is joined by writer Andrew Gimson, former political editor of the Times Philip Webster, political reporter for the Sun Noa Hoffman and Sir Craig Oliver, former director of communications for David Cameron.

Plus columnists James Forsyth and Melanie Reid discuss whether Conservative MPs will swallow Jeremy Hunt's tax rises, Labour's response to the Autumn Statement and when is the right time to put up your Christmas decorations.
