Not Enough Champagne

Come for the political analysis, stay for the bad jokes and wrong predictions. Not Enough Champagne is run by Steve Haynes, who in a previous life was a Parliamentary Candidate for the Liberal Democrats, and Cory Hazlehurst, a Labour activist who has written about politics for the New Statesman. We try to work out what the hell is going on with British Politics and take a step back to shed new light on issues most news outlets don't talk about.

Welcome back to the second series of Not Enough Champagne. In this first episode, we reflect on the latest Labour leadership contest. Given Jeremy Corbyn's standing among his supporters, would he have been able to defeat God in a leadership contest? Was he helped by the campaign of Owen "Bantersaurus Rex" Smith? Will we have to go through this interminable process again next summer, or can the party pull together?

Cory and Steve discuss all these questions and touch on the issue of allowing party members more say in policy.

Remember when saying you had "binders full of women" or that 47% of the American electorate saw themselves as victims seemed like the most insane thing a Republican nominee for President would say?

Cory, Steve and special guest Danielle talk about the 2012 American Presidential Election, armed only with a sketchy knowledge of US politics and copious amounts of alcohol. Expect much love for Gary Johnson from Steve, and lots of talk about rubbish voting systems.

Not Enough Champagne returns for its second season next week, talking about Jeremy Corbyn's certain victory in the Labour Leadership Contest. You can find a teaser trailer for Season 2 at the end of this episode.
