On this week’s News Roundtable episode, Chris Wright CBE is joined by journalist, Writer, and Broadcaster, Christina Patterson, political Commentator, Lee Harris, and news presenter, Rosie Wright.
The conversation starts with the panel discussing Suella Braverman’s recent speech at the National Conservatism conference. They debate whether she was undermining Rishi Sunak and making a bid for leadership. Together, they look at the current landscape of the Conservative Party – how could they win over the public when the party is so clearly divided? Do they need to refind their political identity?
The panel discusses the net migration figures, which are at a record high, and debates whether the post-Brexit points system is working as the country has wide shortages in the workforce. New sky-high immigration figures suggest that Brexit’s motive to reduce net immigration has been undermined. How much is that due to global forces, and how much is it a Brexit betrayal by the government?
They discuss the new revelations on visits to Chequers during Boris Johnson’s premiership and the covid-19 lockdowns. Whilst ethical procedure must be followed to fully investigate the former government’s conduct, will any new findings change anyone’s view of Boris Johnson?
