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.

The NHS is one of Britain's most popular and essential institutions, so how did we get to the point where the NHS looks like it's on the verge of collapse?

This week, Cory and Steve delve into the debate on healthcare and ask, what's wrong with the NHS, how can we solve its problems and how on earth did Jeremy Hunt not get sacked during the Cabinet Re-shuffle.

In this episode, Steve and Cory discuss Devil's Bargain, Joshua Green's book about Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, 2016 and all that. We talk about how World of Warcraft made Donald Trump Presdent, how he could have run as a different type of Republican (ie not a racist) and the bullshit factory that is Breitbart news.

***Minor correction: In the intro we say that Bannon called Trump Jr's meeting with the Russians treasonous, evil and wrong. He didn't say it was evil, but did call it unpatriotic.***

Also, this was recorded a couple of weeks ago, which in Trump terms is about 43 years. So there's no references to the government shut down or Trump's remarks about various African countries.

A new year brings a new series of Not Enough Champagne. In this episode, we discuss what the resolutions should be for Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn. Will the Conservatives be able to stop making everything about Brexit and build a new agenda? Can Labour get Momentum to organise for the local elections? Also, can the Liberal Democrats find a way to make themselves relevant. Listen to find out what else should happen (but probably won't) in 2018.
