A ROUND-UP AND REVIEW OF THE WEEK’S BIGGEST NEWS STORIES
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.
