Podcast Ep. 57: Ukip Fisticuffs, Theresa May’s Great Turn and the Grovelling Donald

Nigel Farage Ukip punchup

With half of us fighting the fag end of a cold, we return to discuss some literal Ukip in-fighting, the political turning of Theresa May’s Tories, a threatened return of Tony Blair and this week’s American presidential debate.

Starting off, Britain’s purple party have spent the last week shedding leaders and allegedly fist-fighting – with some dangerous results. Is there any future for Nigel Farage’s boys and girls?

Next we look at the first Conservative conference speech of newly-crowned prime minister May, which at times sounded like it could have come from Ukip. Is it over for the neoliberalism championed by the likes of former Labour leader Blair?

Finally, American presidential candidate Donald Trump has had to apologise for being offensive, this time by bragging about sexually assaulting women. With the accompanying bad polls, is this the end for the Donald?
