In this episode of Not Enough Champagne, Cory and Steve discuss the various crises engulfing British politics with Charlotte Galpin, Lecturer in German and European Politics at the University of Birmingham. When will the Conservatives sort out a deal with the DUP so that Britain can get a functioning government? How have the Brexit negotiations gone so far? What does the UK actually need to agree in the next nineteen months? How will the recent election affect the type of Brexit deal we get? And what do Europeans think of what is going on here at the moment? We discuss all this with a suitable degree of patriotism.

In this episode, five very tired and confused Labourites gather in our bunker to work out how Labour gets a majority next time round. Is Labour winning a majority next time round possible? What do they have to do in order to build a new coalition of voters? And what will we do with our summer if there is no leadership election? Steve and Cory speak to former chair of Young Fabians Alex Adranghi, chair of Birmingham Fabians LJ Davies and Councillor John Cotton.

In this podcast four guys hide in the nuclear bunker and try and make sense of what just happened. How did Theresa May blow a 20 point lead and what does that mean for her leadership? Is the power of the right-wing press failing? And is the DUP more like UKIP or the GOP, and what is their connection to a 90s indie band? Steve and Cory talk about all of this and more with Luke John Davies and John Cotton.

In this episode we set up a rod for our own backs, a hoist for our petard and a hostage to fortune as we predict what's going to happen on June 8th.

Will Labour or the Tories get a majority, and what will that be? We also touch on how we think the SNP, Lib Dems, Greens and UKIP will fare as well.

Not Enough Champagne will then be back on Sunday to tell you why we were wrong.

On this podcast LJ and Cory discuss whether a progressive alliance could defeat the Conservative government. Does it just mean tactical voting or can parties work together in a more constructive fashion?
