Careless (Not Deliberate) Whisper
As the nation feels the squeeze, the Tories revel in sleaze. We get down to brass tacks on Nadhim Zahawi’s taxes. And while they ditch levelling up, do this cabal of cronies even understand what needs fixing? Plus, we ask: is it time for the West to go full throttle in backing Ukraine in the war against Russia? Our guest this week is Rock and Roll Politics host Steve Richards.

• “The people who are running this country just live in a different world, they have no conception of what real life is.” – Arthur Snell
• “The chaos around levelling up announcements conveyed the emptiness of the policy.” - Steve Richards
• “What happens to some of these people is that they get into as ort of fantasy mindset when they’ve been in power for so long they become immune to how they will be perceived.” – Steve Richards
