Election ‘24: No Dish Rish

Election ‘24: No Dish Rish

Sky-deprived youngster Rishi Sunak announced the Tory manifesto at Silverstone on Tuesday, claiming that the UK economy “is turning a corner”. Even if it is (it’s not), is his manifesto in pole position or does it simply have 4 flat tyres? And as Ed Davey hops on another rollercoaster, whose election campaign is going well and who’s just taking us for a ride? Former Labour Party advisor and co-author of Punch & Judy Politics, Tom Hamilton, joins the panel to discuss all of that. And in the Extra Bit for subscribers, the European elections paid off well for the far-righ...

Saving Private Lyin’

Rishi Sunak’s gaffe over last week’s D-Day memorial service may not be the last big event he leaves early. How badly will this impact his election hopes? Could he even quit the race? Plus, what did we learn from the seven-way second election debate, apart from how much hairspray Penny Mordaunt can use in one go? Join the panel for all that plus this week’s heroes and villains.

Election ’24: The UK Farage Revival

Election ’24: The UK Farage Revival

Election Debate Reaction: The Great British Shout Off

Election Debate Reaction: The Great British Shout Off

The first Sunak vs. Starmer TV debate was as enraging as you might expect. Sunak shouted about tax, while Starmer was more polite – but also too slow to pull the PM up on his bullsh*t. Andrew Harrison and Jacob Jarvis give their reaction to the spectacle.

Election ’24: What’s the story? Mourning Tories

Come to the OGWN Election Night LIVE special at The Tabernacle, London W11. Tickets here. 

Genny Lex 2024 is heating up as Starmer and Sunak hit the campaign trail. The Labour leader has been talking nukes whilst Sunak focuses on culture wars (no surprise there then). And, [sighs] Nigel Farage is back in politics. What does his return mean for the Tories and the impending election? Plus, is anyone actually looking forward to the TV debates? Or are they just a massive waste of time?

Is Rishi No-Mates the Tories’ human shield?

Is Rishi No-Mates the Tories’ human shield?

Rishi Sunak is clearly terrible at politics, as the Election campaign is showing. Will his lack of ability give the Tory Party a smokescreen for their awful record? Plus, Diane Abbott and Jeremy Corbyn were once Labour stalwarts – but now the left wingers are clashing heavily with Starmer. Could Corbyn win as an independent? Plus, in the Extra Bit for subscribers, why is Britain so obsessed with private schools?
