Christopher Hope is joined by fellow Telegraph Camilla Tominey and Tony Diver on this week’s Chopper’s Politics podcast to discuss what can be learned from three very different recent byelections.
Our associate political editor, Camilla Tominey, believes that in the future the same problem faces both Conservatives and Labor: “They have to bring their colors to the fore. What kind of Labor party is Sir Keir Starmer going to lead, and now he’s also Brexit done, what is Boris Johnson’s ideological vision for Britain outside the EU, and how is he doing move this country forward? “
“Yes, Boris Johnson still wears the halo of the vaccination rollout, but it doesn’t last forever, he isn’t literally vaccinated against electoral defeat.”
Political correspondent Tony Diver adds: “I think as all parties head into the next election, they would be keenly aware that all of those old clichés and tropes about where parties have their support seem to fail. not hold so strongly more “.
Also on the podcast: Conversation Party co-chair Amanda Milling on why she thinks the by-election was not a real Labor Party victory, and ERG chairman Mark Francois isn’t chewing his words on the so-called “sausage wars” protocol of Northern Ireland, and reveals why the secretary of Northern Ireland is not in his good books.
