Mr. Farage's initials are quite unfortunate, aren't they?I missed the first ten minutes. AN to Andy MacDonald (in Middlesbrough) re Anti-Semitism. AMcD says it's a lengthy document and he has started reading it.
Sian Berry for the Greens was a guest in the studio. Andrew tackled her on the Greens ten year plan and their choosing to ignore the IPCC. No gas heating. No petrol or diesel cars. Massive reduction in flying. Andrew points out whatever we do China will more than compensate for it, so Greens are in favour of crippling the economy for no impact as it doesn't address what China is doing. "Have you worked out how much you would add to food prices?" AN says Greens are essentially a bourgeois party. Bingo! He points out their proposed subsidies for the middle classes and no benefits for the working classes.
Con/Lab Swingometer with Jeremy Vine re what Labour would need to gain. A brief update from John Curtis. First of the closing polls gives Conservatives +10% Country still divided down the middle on Brexit but leave/remain G.E. voting intentions are not even. Conservative stronger among remain voters.
Andrew predicts The Brexit Party won't win any seats. Ben says we will have to wait and see. Andrew says after the G.E. it is proposed to reform TBP as the Reform Party. NF to be warm up act for Trump.
AN says the Conservatives were asked but "didn't want" to put anybody on the show, as opposed to not having anyone available.
Heseltine appalled by prospect of Brexit. Refuses to discuss personalities but says Corbyn's policies would be catastrophic. AN asks which would he prefer, Brexit or a Corbyn led government? Heseltine says both would be disasters, so it's a matter of which would take longer to recover from. In his opinion Corbyn would take less time to recover from. (He never wanted a woman PM and I think he resented Maggie T).
At the Conservative Rally, PMBJ will stick with his message, Get Brexit done.
I'm not saying she's on anything, she just has that smoky voice and wants to legalise weed. Her policies would be up in smoke anyway. What is she doing personally for the environment? At least I make an effort instead of telling people what they should do about it and doing nothing myself.Mr. Farage's initials are quite unfortunate, aren't they?
That Berry woman, and the greens in general, really get on my wick. The way she just sits there with that stupid, smug, patronising grin on her face. It was good to see Brillo pull her to bits.
Long enough to laud the previous Speaker's even-handedness (sic) [sick joke]...
Caught up with the return of Parliament. Much, much more civil than usual and generally more positive. Unanimous approval I think for the new speaker, Lyndsay Hoyle. Boris remarked on the improved atmosphere. Blackford uncharacteristically brief.
And no Jo Coburn. The young man on today, Adam Fleming, and yesterday asks a question then leaves the panelists to answer. Very refreshing.After the last couple of weeks, unstructured hiatus that was/is the “festive season”, glad to see the programme “Daily Politics” back yesterday lunch time.
Back to "normal" !!
All is well with the world, and the Earth again continues to spin on its axis .
