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.

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?

The Chris Hanretty article we discussed can be found here: https://medium.com/@chrishanretty/should-hoey-and-field-be-de-selected-48a14c8e1e7d

James Cram designed our logo and Dave Depper is responsible for our theme tune.

(Note - this was recorded before Field's resignation from the Labour Whip)
