Sturgeon Resigns, Starmer v Corbyn, and ‘The Palace of Spendminster’

With James Schneider, Suzanne Evans, Ryan Capperauld and Narinder Kaur


In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright is joined by the former adviser for Jeremy Corbyn, James Schneider, former UKIP party deputy chair Suzanne Evans, journalist Ryan Capperauld, and broadcaster and political commentator Narinder Kaur.

The panel discusses whether Nicola Sturgeon’s resignation was caused by short-term pressures or the broader context of the faltering Scottish independence movement, and what this now means for electoral politics in Scotland. 

There is a heated discussion on immigration, and the lavish spending by MPs, highlighting Rishi Sunak’s excessive use of private jets, which sparked a divisive debate on taxation.

In this episode, we have the great benefit of having James Schneider, former adviser for Jeremy Corbyn, comment on Starmer’s assault on the left of the Labour party and his former boss’s disallowance to stand as a Labour candidate in the next election.
