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.

With everything that someone has thought or done now available on social media, do we risk creating a generation of political automatons? Steve and Cory debate this with reference to recent cases such as Boris Johnson, Naz Shah and John O'Farrell. Are politicians entitled to private lives, or once you've committed to public office is anything fair game?

Not Enough Champagne is a podcast about people, politics and pragmatism. If you like this episode please subscribe to us on ITunes and share it on Facebook and Twitter.
