Brexit Deal Poll Results

  • 10 Dec 2018

Given the Prime Minister, in her infinite wisdom, has pulled the vote tomorrow, some questions in this poll have proved to be somewhat academic. However, I'll post them anyway. For the record, 2,318 people took part in this poll. I must emphasise that there is nothing scientif...

Poll: The Withdrawal Deal, a Second Referendum & a Government of National Unity

  • 9 Dec 2018

We could be entering one of the most momentous weeks in British politics for a few decades. Or maybe not. Rumours are rife that the government might 'pull' the meaningful vote on Tuesday. Theresa May is so far resisting advice to do so, but who knows what will happen. Ther...

The Perils of a Second Referendum & Why Remain Must Not Be on the Ballot Paper

  • 7 Dec 2018

Let me make this clear from the start. I am wholly opposed to a Second Referendum, a People's Vote, a Loser's Vote, call it what you will. In 2016 we were told that it was a 'once in a generation vote' and that the government would 'implement what you decide'. Since then, t...

Tory MPs Go To War Over John Hayes 'Utter Cock' Knighthood

  • 24 Nov 2018

It’s no secret that the parliamentary Conservative Party is riven with splits over Europe, but when Tory MPs start laughing uncontrollably about government decisions and taking little notice of government whips, you know it is a government in trouble. Yesterday Downing Stre...

Theresa May is Trying to Deliver a Brexit That No One's Happy With, Apart From Her.

  • 17 Nov 2018

If It's a Choice Between This Awful Brexit Deal and Remaining in the EU, This is What I'd Do...

  • 14 Nov 2018

I’ve been debating with myself since last night whether to write this, but in the end I have to, otherwise I become just as supine as those Cabinet ministers who will no doubt find yet another reason to cling onto their jobs today and not do what their consciences tell them th...

It Shouldn't Happen to a Radio Presenter 64: Herding the Brexit Cats

  • 13 Nov 2018

Each Monday night on LBC we covene a panel to debate what we think is going to be one of the big issues of the week. Sometimes we have panellists that no-one has ever heard of. Sometimes we deliberately invite younger pundits. On Friday my producer, Sophie, and I agreed that B...

The Consequences of Keir - Could He Now Be Reshuffled?

  • 25 Sep 2018

Sir Keir Starmer may have had a bit of a moment this morning when he was cheered by Labour conference delegates for going off script and making clear his view that any future referendum could include the option of remaining a member of the EU. But might it turn into a somewhat...

WATCH: Interview With Triggernometry

  • 29 Jul 2018

This is an interview I did recently for the triggernometry podcast and Youtube channel. It’s 70 minutes long and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The interviewers are two comedians, Konstantin Kisin and Francis Foster. We talk about my career, the power of radio, the NHS, immigratio...
