The Week in 60 Minutes: Trump's FBI raid & Britain dries up

Aug 07, 09:00 AM

Katy Balls, The Spectator’s deputy political editor, speaks to Freddy Gray, our deputy editor, about the FBI raid of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence:

‘There’s some desperation to get Trump. It’s self-defeating because it justifies his narrative that the “deep state” is out to get him.’ – Freddy Gray

Matt Purple, online editor of The Spectator’s world edition, joins Freddy. On the rest of the show, our political editor James Forsyth and the American Enterprise Institute’s Elisabeth Braw, an expert on resilience, discuss where our water industry went so wrong. Political journalists Patrick O’Flynn and Isabel Oakeshott give their takes on the Tory leadership contest. Christopher Howse, of the Telegraph and The Spectator, explains the joy of a newspaper’s letters page.
