Boris' Build Back ... Blather, and Keir Starmer's quest for competency

Oct 07, 12:00 PM

The New European Podcast is back from its break! In this week’s episode, host Steve Anglesey hears your thoughts on both Keir Starmer's and Boris Johnson's party conference speeches - with the latter, "Build Back Blather" came to mind for one listener. Journalist and pollster Peter Kellner joins the podcast explaining that he fears the conferences did not teach the public anything they didn't already know, or believe, about either party. As Keir Starmer continues his quest for competency, Kellner asks if he can simultaneously detoxify Labour. If he does the Conservatives are in for a scrap at the next election, he predicts. Plus, Nadine Dorries, Ann Widdecombe and Dominic Raab all feature in the Hall of Shame this week. Enjoyed this episode and the podcast's new shorter, snappier format?
