On 27 October, Rishi Sunak presented his third budget and the first multiyear spending review since 2015. Now the dust has settled, what did we learn? Why was the fiscal windfall so large? How did the chancellor choose to spend it? Was there evidence of a Brexit dividend? Did the spending review settlements meet the needs of public services? Can government become more productive to achieve much more with only a bit more money?   Our special guest for this special edition was Chris Francis, government affairs director for SAP.   This special Budget edition comes with welcome support from SAP.

    Why Does It Always Rayn On Keir?

    33:45

    When Angela Rayner stood up to set out her vision for restoring trust in public life, news broke that Keir Starmer had started to reshuffle his team. Was it a conspiracy, a cock-up, or something in-between? ELENI COUREA, political reporter at The Times who broke the reshuffle story, joins to discuss Labour’s internal politics, and the new-look Shadow Cabinet. And, the new strain of COVID is here. Will Omicron result in another cancelled Christmas, or will the measures brought in be enough to save the festive season?  “Angela Rayner’s team were convinced Starmer wanted to overshadow her speech, but the leader’s office have denied this.” - ELENI COUREA “Many Labour MPs do have close links with Blair and Brown, so referring to the factions isn’t inaccurate.” - ELENI COUREA “The Government are suffering because they don’t have a clear decision making framework.” - ALEX THOMAS “The Conservative Party is united in not wanting to impose any domestic restrictions.” - ELENI COUREA “The common sense message has become lost because different people are saying different things.” - ALEX THOMAS Presented by Bronwen Maddox with Cath Haddon and Alex Thomas.

    “Is everything OK, Prime Minister?”

    40:53

    The Prime Minister’s speech to the CBI, in which he enthused about Peppa Pig and lost his place for 20 excruciating seconds, has caused concern in Government. Is all ok inside Number 10, or was this just the PM being himself? It’s not all plain sailing in the Commons either, as the Government suffered a big rebellion over plans to reform social care, and the row over standards in public life continues. Our special guest ROBERT SHRIMSLEY, Chief Political Commentator at the FT, joins us to discuss. “The problem is, this is the Prime Minister. He thrives on this chaotic approach and he has always relied on it.” - ROBERT SHRIMSLEY “The vaccine task force did well, but when you have money and momentum behind you that task becomes easier.” - ALEX THOMAS “Those who will benefit the most from social care plan are those with the most expensive houses, inevitably in the South.” - ROBERT SHRIMSLEY “The whips need to get a handle on this because the more MPs get a taste of rebellion, the more likely it is to happen.” - HANNAH WHITE “Johnson was elected as good-time premier, but COVID has wrecked the finances.” - ROBERT SHRIMSLEY Presented by Bronwen Maddox with Hannah White, Alex Thomas and Graham Atkins. Audio production by Alex Rees.

    Sleaze into Another Week

    36:39

    As Boris Johnson struggles to shake off questions about standards and MPs’ second jobs, what’s the latest in the never-ending row gripping Westminster? Also how did the Government scramble supplies of PPE during the pandemic peak? The data has been released so we take a closer look. And John Swinney, Deputy First Minister of Scotland gave a talk at the IFG, and he didn’t hold back.  Our special guest is HENRY DYER, politics reporter for Business Insider, specialising in political financing, appointments and data-driven investigations. “We all lose when people don’t have faith in Parliament as an institution” - ALICE LILLEY “The UK’s stockpile of PPE was much too small, we hadn’t prepared for this” - TOM SASSE “According to John Swinney, the Government is undermining devolution” - AKASH PAUN “A lot of MPs currently in jobs are thinking ‘am I going to be able continuing doing these jobs or not?’” - HANNAH WHITE Presented by Tim Durrant with Hannah White, Alice Lilley, Tom Sasse and Akash Paun. Audio production by Alex Rees.

    “Not Remotely A Corrupt Country”

    38:52

    As the Owen Paterson mess unspools to expose Geoffrey Cox’s novel approach to working from home and much more, has the Government set off a multi-polar controversy it can’t control? Did Boris Johnson do himself any favours by refusing to face the Commons in contrition? And how does it play outside Westminster when someone on £80,000 a year claims they needs a second or third job? Our special guest is ROB HUTTON, veteran lobby journalist and now sketchwriter at The Critic.  • “What did I make of last week in Parliament? It was objectively hilarious.” – ROB HUTTON • “Rees-Mogg and Mark Spencer had to sit silently on the benches and take their punishment – and that was quite the sight.” – CATH HADDON • “It’s not important to say you’re not a corrupt country. It’s important not to HAVE to say you’re not a corrupt country…” – ROB HUTTON • “If MPs like Geoffrey Cox have time to do all this extra work, why don’t they spend it trying to improve Parliament?” – CATH HADDON • “The fact that Geoffrey Cox had massive outside jobs was known ten days ago and it wasn’t news back then. It is now.” – ROB HUTTON Presented by Hannah White with Cath Haddon and Tim Durrant.  Audio production by Alex Rees.

    A Massive Owen Goal

    34:31

    In a series of unforced errors, the Government first whips its MPs to rescind the suspension of OWEN PATERSON MP for lobbying and rethink the entire Commons standards process… then suffers a rebellion and a roasting in the press… and then reverses their decision entirely. How damaging is this episode? And is there a case for reforming the system? Plus, we hear the latest on COP26 from RICHARD BLACK, senior associate of climate change non-profit the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit, who’s on the spot in Glasgow.  • “Yes, there is a case to be made for reforming the standards process, but not when you’re investigating a former Cabinet Minister.” – JILL RUTTER • “If you have a PM who is willing to use his political capital to protect someone who has broken the rules, there is no recourse in our system” – TIM DURRANT • “Upending a whole system to protect one of your own laid the Government open to charges that it would just protect its friends.”– JILL RUTTER • “If the country is going to become carbon neutral then the countryside is going to have to become carbon negative” –  RICHARD BLACK Presented by Bronwen Maddox with Tom Sasse, Jill Rutter and Tim Durrant.  Audio production by Alex Rees.

    Budget Review: Have Your Twix and Eat It

    27:29

    Fuelled by a Twix and a can of Sprite, Chancellor Rishi Sunak finally set out his budget and multi-year spending review on Wednesday, we take a look at his plans will mean for Britain’s economy. Also, COVID hasn’t gone away, but what would the introduction of plan B look like? Is the public ready for it? And COP26 begins at the weekend. MO HUSSEIN, former advisor to Climate Change Secretary Amber Rudd joins to tell us what these conferences are really like, and what needs to happen to make the event a success for both Britain and the world.  * “The rhetoric of the budget speech didn’t match up to the forecasts.” - GEMMA TETLOW * “When Sunak receives bad news, he raises taxes. When he gets good news, he raises spending.” - GEMMA TETLOW * “It was noticeable how little ‘net-zero’ was mentioned in the budget, especially with COP26 next week.” - ROSA HODGKIN * “The Conservatives are matching, even outdoing Labour on spending in some areas.” - MO HUSSEIN * “Lots of geopolitics happens at COP summits, countries need to cut through that.” - MO HUSSEIN * “Failure would look like coming out COP26 with the same climate targets as we have now.” - ROSA HODGKIN Presented by Bronwen Maddox with Gemma Tetlow and Rosa Hodgkin of the IfG.

    Budget Preview: Rishi Business

    49:49

    This week’s Budget is Rishi Sunak’s third – but the first he’s undertaken outside of firefighting mode. What can we expect? Will Sunak be able to finally put some meat on the bare bones of levelling up? How much room to manoeuvre does he have in the midst of crises on the cost of living, staffing and productivity? And what should he do for small business? Our special guests for this special edition are SONIA KHAN, former special advisor to Sajid Javid; and CRAIG BEAUMONT from the Federation of Small Businesses.  This budget preview edition is supported by the Federation of Small Businesses. Find out more at www.fsb.org.uk  * “Even if we get back to a pre-pandemic economy, that wasn’t so rosy… Unless we get a step change in productivity it’s not going to feel like the Roaring Twenties.” – TOM POPE * “When Chancellors deliver growth or investment, it’s often the Chancellor after them that reaps the credit.” – SONIA KHAN * “Small businesses have had a torrid 18 months and they’re expecting a torrid autumn-winter… We’ve lost over 400,000 small businesses.” – CRAIG BEAUMONT * “We’re seeing Sunak shake off his Mr Nice Guy image… We’re seeing the start of the definition of what he’s about.” – SONIA KHAN * “The economy is smaller than it was for small businesses and the recovery looks like it’s running out of steam.” – GRAHAM ATKINS Presented by Gemma Tetlow with Tom Pope of the IfG.

    The David Amess murder: Will politics change?

    41:53

    The murder of Sir David Amess MP has shocked the political world deeply. With the threat level to MPs now assessed as “significant”, how will this terrible event affect the face-to-face contact with parliamentarians that British democracy depends upon? Plus, are the Government’s voluminous climate change plans in shape for Boris Johnson’s big moment at COP26? As energy prices soar, has the Government got its Net Zero tax sums rights? Tim Ross, executive editor (politics) of the New Statesman, is our special guest.  “The mood in Westminster is incredibly sad… David Amess and also James Brokenshire were two of the nicest and kindest MPs.” – Tim Ross “If leaders want the public to treat MPs with respect, it needs to start from the top. We can’t have Prime Ministers bashing Parliamentarians.” – Jill Rutter “What is driving this aggressive culture? There is a profound cynicism about Parliament – but most parliamentarians are decent people who are trying to help.” – Alice Lilly “I question whether the country cares enough about its democracy. Do we care enough to protect our MPs?" – Tim Ross “You can’t spin shortages on the shelves as a brilliant idea.” – Giles Wilkes Presented by Bronwen Maddox with Alice Lilly, Jill Rutter and Giles Wilkes.

    Brexit: An Early Frost

    30:43

    As the EU produces sweeping new proposals on previous red-line issues, can the Government really rewrite the Northern Ireland Protocol to everyone’s satisfaction? If Britain always intended to sign now and ditch it later, what will that do future relations with the EU? Plus, we read every page of the Coronavirus: Lessons Learned report to tease out what really matters. Adam Payne of politicshome.com is our guest.  “Will Johnson ever be able to say that Brexit is done? It’s more a case of, will he ever WANT to say that Brexit is done?” – Jill Rutter “Any future COVID inquiry will inevitably be hugely damaging to the Conservative brand – but this report is not going to damage this particular government.” – Adam Payne “It’s amazing that a report covering perhaps the biggest public health failure ever is a one-day news story.” – Jill Rutter “From the COVID report there’s perhaps too much emphasis on the advice and not enough on the political decision-making.” – Tom Sasse Presented by Bronwen Maddox with Joe Marshall, Jill Rutter and Tom Sasse.
