“Even just the last three years of this Tory government has wiped the face off of anything that was decent in this country. They’ve basically punched the UK square in the face and knocked it out.” - Freddie Bailey

On this week’s News Roundtable episode, Chris Wright CBE is joined by political commentator & co-host of The Trawl podcast Marina Purkiss, Conservative broadcaster, commentator and columnist Emily Carver, Labour Councillor for Preston Freddie Bailey, and Conservative commentator and columnist Samantha Smith.

The conversation kicks off with Sunak’s immigration speech in Dover on Monday, and whether Brexit impacts inflation. Then the panel debate what state the country will be in at the end of this Conservative government and whether Labour will be the change we need. Is the country repairable? 

Freddie Bailey analyses Labour’s political position, and that given the struggling economy the Tories would hand them upon being elected. 

They discuss the covid inquiry and whether the pandemic has acted as a convenient smokescreen for Tory economic mismanagement and the underfunding of the NHS. 

Finally, Chris turns the discussion to the global threat of AI – will it take all our jobs, will we create new jobs? Samantha Smith unveils some frightening AI tales.
