“There’s no greater flip-flop than a Conservative flip-flop.” - Liz Webster
In this week’s News Roundtable episode, Chris Wright is joined by the presenter of Times Radio Early Breakfast show, Rosie Wright, UK and US political commentator, Edward Hardy, and former LibDem parliamentary candidate for Cotswolds and founder of Save British Farming, Liz Webster.
The starting gun has been fired for the next general election. What can the Tories do to turn around the opinion polls? Is Labour’s strategy of holding back on publishing hard policy working? Could Rishi Sunak call the general election as soon as October this year?
The panel discuss how the Tories are just as lost Labour on their political identity. They look globally to where our relations with our European neighbours stand. Liz tells us the Liberal Democrat’s true position on Brexit.
They then discuss the prospect of the Tories scrapping inheritance tax and HS2, whilst Sunak told the North this week that they’ll sort out the potholes first. That’d be something! The panel discuss why Britain is so bad at big infrastructure projects.
