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.

This episode is all about bribes in politics. Steve and Cory talk about Boris Johnson's planned tax cut for those earning £50-80K, is Margaret Hodge right that ending austerity is a bribe (spoiler alert: No) and which cereal best matches each of the Tory leadership contenders.

Three years to the day since the Brexit Referendum, Steve and Cory talk about the broken British Constitution. Who are the 160,000 Tory party members choosing the next Prime Minister, and just how unrepresentative are they of the general public? What constitutional crises can we expect to face between now and the end of October? And will that new Prime Minister be able to command a majority?

Steve and Cory discuss the first round of the Tory Leadership ballot, the importance of calling Boris Johnson by his full name, and can anyone stop him?

We are joined once again by Brigid Jones, John Cotton and Luke John Davies to talk about the EU election campaign. We discuss the worrying Trumpian turn that Nigel Farage has taken, how Labour should respond to the rise of the Lib Dems, and the worst result for a governing party since 1066.
