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 week, Steve and Cory talk about two bad ways of making policy: trying to copy populists, and just talking about "evidence based policy" without thinking through the implications.

On this episode, we discuss the 11 MPs that have gone off to join the Independent Group (or playing TIG). What do they actually stand for? Is this just a flash in the pan? And if Emmanuel Macron is Jupiter, then which Roman God is Mike Gapes?
