Calling Peston: Bonus Episode: Who won the seven-way ITV Election Debate?

06/12/2019

December 01,2019

Which of the seven politicians won the ITV election debate? What was the gossip in the spin room? And what does Robert make of the free wine provided by ITV? In the bonus episode of Calling Peston, ITV political correspondent Daniel Hewitt and Political Editor Robert Peston give their verdicts following the two hour live television debate between the seven main political parties. Find out why the Tories chose Rishi Sunak and Labour chose Richard Burgon to stand in for their leaders, as they discuss if Jeremy Corbyn missed an open goal by not showing up. They debate the moments of the debate, including THAT comment by Nigel Farage on Donald Trump, and whether it has in any way moved the dial in this election.

DW News: Quo Vadis? NATO at 70: ‘Brain dead’ or fighting fit?

06/12/2019

 

The NATO summit in London was supposed to celebrate 70 years of peace. Instead, it revealed many fundamental differences between partners. Our guests: Malte Lehming (Der Tagesspiegel), Emmanuelle Chaze (DW), Vladimir Esipov (DW)

I think some of the commentators made highly questionable comments. The opening comment re Trump was I think wrong.

Impeachment – a daily podcast: Have We Had Enough Hearings?

A new series from WNYC

Where are we on impeachment today?

Today was the final day of the second week of public testimony in the impeachment probe. We heard from Fiona Hill, an aide to the now-ousted National Security Adviser John Bolton, and from David Holmes, who overheard a crucial call between Sondland and the President. Holmes testified that he could hear Trump asking whether Zelensky would begin “the investigations.” After the call, Sondland told Holmes that Trump didn’t care about Ukraine, only about “big stuff,” like an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden that could help the President politically in the 2020 election. 

On today’s episode:
