Chopper’s Politics Podcast: How do we protect our MPs?


This was very interesting and concerning

22 October 2021

The death of Sir David Amess cast a shadow over Westminster this week, and in the wake of such a shocking loss comes renewed discussions around MPs’ safety. Former Environment and Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers opens up about the threats she’s received, cautions against disrupting constituents’ access to their MP and tells Chopper why comments about “Tory scum” just aren’t helpful. Also on the podcast: Andrew Mitchell MP gives us a glimpse behind the fringe in his new memoir and shares a touching memory of his friend Sir David, and former Health Secretary under New Labour Alan Milburn has some words of caution for the government as they embark on pumping money into an ailing NHS (sound familiar?)
