She Won’t Change Her Mind

This week Adam and Mark talk transition/implementation.

We also talk a bit of American politics towards the end, for those of you who like that.

We’re not lawyers, we’re not politicians (yet) so any opinions on transition should only be used as another source on which to form your own.

Episode title inspired by our Prime Minister, with her staying power, and the excellent song by Keith Hopwood & Phil Bush, from the soundtrack to Soul Music, a TV adaptation of a work by my favourite author… phew!

We also have a small conversation about the US.

Title inspired by every single member of May’s government who’s walked out over the last year and a bit, also the great song by Arctic Monkeys.

One More Time

This week Adam’s very down on the very nature of democratic government, and Mark acts as a universal doom-bringer.

We get into the constitutional discussion again.

Also, something big came out of the Chancellor.

Title inspired by a certain David, who may or may not be planning a comeback tour. Also the extremely popular song by Daft Punk.

Welcome to the Black Parade

This week Adam and Mark talk about marching, the EU, Nigel Farage, and various aspects of Parliamentary Privilege.

Adam mentioned the book ‘Honourable Friends?’ by Caroline Lucas, well worth a read.

The title of this podcast was inspired by the My Chemical Romance song of the same name\, and a rather large event held in London, though not as big as another large event a few years ago.

Let’s hear you jeers, cheers and here heres!

Liberal Faschism?

Adam and Mark avoid the subject of religion, talking instead about the religion of politics. We also discuss the history of the Labour party, in brief.

Is Labour one man?

The name we couldn’t remember was Peter Willsman.

Episode title inspired by the excellent song from Green Day (from an excellent album,) and possibly the Labour party…

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Adam and Mark talk about dancing, NATO, and they liken a potential Labour Prime Minister to a Conservative one.

The comic mentioned by Adam is this one:

The title of this episode was inspired by Adam’s loathing of the analogy of the Millennium Bug to Brexit, and the Jamiroquai song of the same name.

All Summer Long

Adam and Mark talk about the death penalty, a rather sticky subject, followed by some lighthearted dismissal of the UK’s Brexit process.

We also talk about cannabis… again!
