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.

As Labour has its annual conference and Jeremy Corbyn celebrates three years as Labour leader, Steve and Cory discuss how the Labour Party has changed with Councillors John Cotton and Nicky Brennan.

Sep 16, 2018

The new parliamentary session has started, and is now adjourned for conference season. It promises to be a tumultuous six months in British Politics. Steve and Cory speak to Labour Councillors Nicky Brennan and John Cotton to discuss what might happen. Will Britain get a trade deal? Will Labour split? When will Theresa May stand down? All this is covered and more.

Recorded during silly season, here is our podcast on the ongoing travails of the Labour moderates. We have fun (perhaps too much fun) talking about a "secret" plot to oust Corbyn that was leaked to the Sunday Express (https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/999804/jeremy-corbyn-labour-leadership-coup-brexit-antisemitism) and Chris Leslie's pamphlet on the centre ground to the Social Market Foundation (http://www.smf.co.uk/publications/centre-ground-six-values-mainstream-britain/). SPOILER ALERT: We don't like it very much.

In this episode, Steve and Cory discuss what the role of an MP should be. Is an MP a social worker or a legislator? Are they accountable to their conscience or constituents? In what circumstances should MPs be deselected? And is shrew fighting really a thing?
