Boris Johnson finally looks vulnerable, but should we really want him to go on the eve of the Omicron Wave? Is Partygate plus COVID fatigue a recipe for non-compliance? Did Plan B happen so fast to save Johnson’s skin – and should Lib Dems, Greens and the Left really make common cause with libertarian Tories over vaccine passports and mandatory vaccinations? Plus, the Afghanistan Withdrawal was among the most shameful episodes of 2021. We ask Kim Ghattas – Middle East expert and author of Black Wave: Saudi Arabia, Iran and the Rivalry that Unravelled the Middle East – if the West will ever have positive influence in the region again. “This is a hugely weakened Johnson… Nobody could have predicted he’d collapse so badly, so soon.” – Naomi Smith “We are in a very scary place now with the virus. Soon we’ll run out of testing capacity – and we will have no idea how many people have COVID.” – Ros Taylor “I look at Partygate and think maybe we should be kinder to our own politicians in Lebanon. Maybe they’re not so bad.” – Kim Ghattas “If there’s one thing worse than going into this stage of the pandemic with the Tories in charge, it’s going in with nobody in charge.” – Ros Taylor “The Taliban have realised they can’t operate like they did in the 90s… They have to let technocrats who are women to go back to work, because they know how to run a country.” – Kim Ghattas Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith and Ros Taylor. Assistant producers: Jacob Archbold and Jelena Sofronijevic. Audio production by Robin Leeburn. Theme music by Cornershop. Thanks to Stephen and Mandy for the graphic. Group Editor: Andrew Harrison.

    Red Meat is a Dog’s Dinner

    1:03:55

    The Sue Gray report is imminent, Tory backbenchers are sending in their letters to the 1922 committee, and Bury North MP Christian Wakeford has defected to Labour. Is Boris Johnson a dead man walking, or can he really ride this out? Plus, we discuss the Government’s latest attack on the BBC, and how to fund the national broadcaster in the age of streaming. The Financial Times’ Chief Features Writer Henry Mance is our special guest this week. “Johnson must have thought he was home free, then on the last question David Davis called for his resignation in the strongest terms.” - Alex Andreou “Christian Wakeford having a majority of only 402 in a red wall seat is probably a motivating factor in him having switched.” - Minnie Rahman “Older MPs rebelled against Cameron and May, yet they now think they’re in a position to tell newer MPs ‘you shouldn’t rebel’.” - Henry Mance “Attacks on the BBC are incoherent, the Government want it to be a patriotic national broadcaster, yet they also want it to be like Netflix.” - Henry Mance www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Minnie Rahman and Alex Andreou.

    You’ll Always Find Me In Denial At Parties

    1:06:14

    When is a party not a party? As Boris Johnson slobbers out a pitifully insincere apology for No.10’s Turbo Garden Rave 2020, has he finally lost the Tory Party as well as most of the country? Plus, Liz Truss: Portrait of a Woman Who’s Dire. What makes Cosplay Thatcher run? And who would our panel put in the Lords? Comedy writer of HIGNFY fame Sara Gibbs is our special guest.   “I can’t pretend I’m not enjoying this absolute lying bastard getting his comeuppance… He is boxed in by his own bullshit.” – Ian Dunt “I’ve been to some bad parties but none so bad I thought they were work meetings.” – Naomi Smith” “Trying to get a COVID LFT is like trying to get a five star meal.” – Ian Dunt “In Liz Truss’s infamous cheese speech you could see her brain going ‘Do a smile now.’ I have no idea what’s going on in there. She’s naked ambition in a skin suit.” – Sara Gibbs “It’s a lie within a lie within a lie, tumbling into oblivion.” – Ian Dunt “The mistake with Boris Johnson was treating him like a bumbling buffoon… We made him seem innocuous. I worry about doing the same with Liz Truss.” – Sara Gibbs “I’d rather Boris Johnson stayed there as a dead man walking… But the alternatives do look very, very beatable.” – Ian Dunt Back us at www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith and Ian Dunt.

    Happy New Keir

    1:06:48

    It’s the first Oh God, What Now? of 2022, and we’re going back to our roots by looking at good old Brexit. What joys will our prolonged divorce from Europe bring in the year ahead? Plus Keir Starmer put his “Contract with the British public” on the table in a speech earlier this week, but what exactly is it? And in the extra bit, we discuss Netflix’s apocalyptic comedy Don’t Look Up. “Macron has nothing to lose with this rhetoric, anti-vaxxers aren’t going to vote for him anyway and the vaxxed don’t want a lockdown.” - Ros Taylor “What we’ve learnt is that the sub-tribes within the Brexit tribe want very different things.” - Alex Andreou “The Brexiteers promised IMAX, but instead they’re huddling round a black and white TV showing the Australia trade deal again.” - Dorian Lynskey “The Tories are really struggling to maintain the culture war, and without it politics returns to a discussion of material conditions.” - Ian Dunt “The Tony Blair peerage debate is one of the most boring debates, there should be a button on Twitter to shut down discussion on Blair.” - Ian Dunt www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Alex Andreou, Ian Dunt and Ros Taylor.

    🎄Christmas ’21 🧀🍷 Away In A Danger! 🥂

    1:00:44

    🎶 “Simply having/A terrible cheese and wine…” 🎶 In the last OGWN of 2021, our Christmas stocking bulges with troubles for Boris Johnson. Lord Frost bails out, the UK caves over the ECJ and the Northern Ireland Protocol, people have never been so angry about cheese and/or wine, and he’s lost control of COVID measures – again. What a way to end the year. Plus: The panel reads the tea leaves for reasons to be optimistic in 2022. The many faces of the Liz Truss Multiverse. And what’s the worst Christmas our panel have ever had? “The Brexiters can’t let Northern Ireland be seen as the only part of the UK to make a success of Brexit… because it’s still in the Single Market.” – Naomi Smith “Lord Frost’s resignation was timed to cause maximum damage to an already damaged Johnson. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the rivals had offered him a job.” – Alex Andreou “Liz Truss is oozing with desperation for the top job, it’s almost embarrassing.” – Naomi Smith “If the Government is saying we need something in a week, the science is probably saying we needed it a week ago.” – Minnie Rahman Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith, Alex Andreou, Minnie Rahman and Ros Taylor.

    🚨🗳 Emergency By-Electioncast 🚨🗳 Come Gloat With Us 🚨🗳

    22:41

    SHORT SHARP SHROP: Christmas comes early as Johnson’s Tories are utterly humiliated in the North Shropshire by-election, with the ignominious loss of a 23,000-vote majority in a Tory heartland – and the biggest swing to the Lib Dems since 1993. What brought about this debacle: sleaze, scandal, Christmas parties, Johnson selling out farmers, Owen Paterson’s arrogance, or Johnson’s own repellent personality? And did Labour play it right by not campaigning too hard? Ros, Naomi and Dorian gather for a nice hot glass of mulled schadenfreude. “This shows there isn’t yet huge appetite for a Starmer government. What there is, is disgust at the Conservative government.” – Ros Taylor “Unlike Chesham and Amersham this wasn’t Remainers’ Revenge. This was very much a verdict on Johnson.” – Naomi Smith “The Paterson affair shows Johnson’s fatal flaw: hubris. This will be his downfall.” – Ros Taylor Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith and Ros Taylor. Assistant producers: Jacob Archbold and Jelena Sofronijevic. Audio production by Robin Leeburn.

    The Culture War’s deep roots – with guests JON RONSON and RAF BEHR

    1:05:23

    If you thought the Culture War was a recent invention, you’d be wrong. Investigative mischief-maker JON RONSON joins us to explain how its roots run a lot deeper than you might think – as he learned from making his new podcast series Things Fell Apart. Plus, are progressive politics finally turning the corner? The Guardian’s RAFAEL BEHR on the difference between where Starmer is and where he needs to be. And what will the NEXT Culture War be about?  • “If you fill your head with ideology then there is no room for curiosity.” – JON RONSON • “The Government only has two approaches: total lockdown or Plague Party.” – NAOMI SMITH • “There is no Blairism left in the Labour Party. But there is anti-Corbynism.” – RAF BEHR • “Every generation wants to solve the problems of the previous one.” – JON RONSON • “Brexit was sold on controlling the borders – but you can’t do that if you only control one side of the border.” – RAF BEHR Listen to Jon Ronson’s Things Fell Apart: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/series/m0011cpr Back us at www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Presented by Ros Taylor with Naomi Smith.

    DePfeffel Pig and the Very Hard Speech

    1:02:55

    As Johnson makes a pig's ear out of his speech to the CBI, and with unrest sizzling on the Tory backbenches over social care, is the Prime Minister in danger of getting smoked out, or can he use red meat to buy off his MPs? Plus continental Europe is facing a fourth wave of COVID, reaching case rates the UK has seen for months! Will Britain avoid another lockdown, and are we changing our behaviour as Christmas approaches? Naomi, Dorian and Alex are joined by special guest Gavin Esler on this week’s show. “Johnson turning up and winging his speech is effectively another way of saying ‘fuck business’.” - Alex Andreou “I hate commentators using the word ‘authentic’, some people are authentically shit.” - Gavin Esler  “Johnson is under attack from all groups in the party, this makes it very difficult for him to buy them off.” - Naomi Smith “One person I think has a good chance is Jeremy Hunt. He’s biding his time, outside the cabinet of disasters.” - Gavin Esler “The UK became desensitised after the 80,000 death second wave, something that other European countries didn’t go through.” - Alex Andreou Back us on Patreon: www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith and Alex Andreou.
