Au revoir Boris Johnson & union strikes

With Don Williams, Emina Ibrahim and Douglas Beattie


In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright is joined by Chairman of the Conservative Party in Hampstead and Kilburn, Don Williams, Labour Councillor in Haringey, Emina Ibrahim, and Douglas Beattie of TSSA trade union.

The conversation kicks off with the panel discussing their predictions for what Boris Johnson is going to do next – is this the last we have seen of him? They also debate the possibility of Boris returning as Prime Minister and question the likelihood of Conservative Party voters selecting him again.

The discussion moves on to debate whether there is a political will to help solve the cost of living crisis and the measures the Conservative government need to take to help the public. Together, they question the possibility of the new Prime Minister announcing new plans when they are voted in on the 5th of September. They also argue about the effects of privatisation on the cost of living crisis.

The panel discuss the possibility of wider industries striking and what needs to be changed for unions to stop strike action. Finally, they wrap up the discussion by sharing their thoughts on a Liz Truss premiership, and what the new Prime Minister should prioritise.

All this and much more debated on this week’s Wright on the Nail!
