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.

"Tony Blair makes more domestic interventions now than he does when he was Prime Minister".

If Westminster tittle-tattle is to be believed, next Wednesday's budget needs to go well for Philip Hammond to keep his job. We discuss how Hammond can try and satisfy Brexiters by planning for a no-deal Brexit, as well as try and ease public concerns about austerity. Finally, Steve and Cory make their budget predictions. One of us is bound to be right.

Steve, Cory and special guest Dr Charlotte Galpin look at the history of political parties promising to abolish university fees. The Lib Dems did it; was it a success for them? (Spoiler alert: no, it wasn't). Now Labour have promised to abolish university fees, what does this mean for the party in the longer run?
