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.
The coronation of a new prime minister and the continual hardships of the Labour party, which is about to have a leadership contest, are our two topics this week.
John is called in to mediate Jazza and Jimmy, both on different sides of the Brexit vote, and to discuss the fallout from last week’s vote.
Scotland, Ireland, and the future of the Lib Dems, Tories and Labour are all on the cards. Basically, we’re fucked. (Ed: According to Jazza.)

After three weeks apart Jazza and Jimmy are finally reunited, and the sexual tension has never been greater.
We discuss the protests and content at the Tory party conference in Manchester, the egg slinging, the leadership posturing, the weird standing and everything in between.
We then segway seamlessly into the EU referendum campaigns being launched and how scared Jazza is of leaving, before finally, offering some interesting perspectives on Russia choosing to barge it’s way into Syria. Is it such a bad thing?

Further mischief at the Tory conference was on show on Monday as those entering the “ring of steel” were pelted with plastic balls as the police looked bemusedly on.
It follows a day of ugliness on Sunday in which journalists were spat on and one young Conservative was even hit in the forehead with an egg.
