NET ZERO LUXURY, BENEFITS OF PRIVATISATION & BORIS JOHNSON VS THE LAW!

With Frances Leach, Lance Forman & Nazir Afzal

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


In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright joins Labour Councillor Frances Leach, Former London MEP, Lance Forman, and Former Chief Crown Prosecutor for North West England, Nazir Afzal.

First, the panel discusses Nigel Farage’s new initiative, ‘Vote Power Not Poverty,’ which aims to galvanise the public into pushing back against a net zero agenda and question if it is a luxury or a necessity. They question why net zero seems so low on the agenda of the leadership candidates, debate whether climate change is a man-made problem that can be solved by 2050, and argue the importance of investing more heavily into green energy.

The conversation moves on to the privatisation of the water companies – asking the question of whether Thatcher’s policy of privatisation was wrong. They delve into whether the privatisation of different industries has benefited the people of the UK or whether they would be better off in public hands.

Together, the panel discusses Liz Truss’ economic programme. Is Liz Truss so popular with the Conservative Party members because she wants to shake things up? They look at the select committee enquiry into Partygate, debating whether the investigation should continue after Boris Johnson leaves Number 10. 

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