Tackling Immigration, Sue Gray, and the Dodgy Honours List

With Jess Barnard, Edward Hardy, Christina Patterson, and David C Bannerman


In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright is joined by Jess Barnard, Chair of Young Labour and member of Labour’s NEC, Edward Hardy, UK & US political commentator and journalist, Christina Patterson, journalist, writer and broadcaster, and David C Bannerman, former Conservative MEP and Chairman of The Freedom Association.

The conversation dives straight into the hottest topic of the week; the government’s Illegal Immigration Bill, with David being the only panellist to strongly back the policy. The divisiveness of immigration stimulates a fascinating debate among the panel, which gradually crescendos to some explosive exchanges. They cool down in time for a discussion of Tory sensationalism regarding Sue Gray’s appointment by Keir Starmer. In the wake of Boris Johnson’s obscene honours list as an outgoing prime minister – including a knighthood for his father – the panel debate the honours system.
