Planet Normal: Are the Tories falling apart?


Excellent podcast with a lot of good points.

Podcast series from the UK Telegraph, hosted by economist and columnist Liam Halligan and co-host columnist Allison Pearson, looking at issues of the moment.

November 24, 2022

As a growing number of Conservative MPs announce plans to step down at the next election, our co-pilots mull over whether it might be time for a change in high office.

Allison believes the Tories have given up on business and growth, and they’re only surviving day to day. Co-pilot Pearson is also concerned the Government hasn’t truly grasped the enormity of the challenges within the NHS.

But Liam is doubtful that opposition leader Sir Keir Starmer is a better alternative and questions whether he is strong enough to lead a winning party, instead of gaining victory by default.

And finally our co-pilots pay tribute to their unlikely hero… Tony Blair.
