For this week only our two hosts turn to the only topic worth talking about: UK prime minister Theresa May’s plans to bless the British with yet another vote!

US president Donald Trump’s new interest in bombing Syria, handbags during the leadership election at the union Unite, and the – like – super-offensive Pepsi advert featuring cleb Kendall Jenner are the topics three this week.
Joining us is Ely, better known as aTalkingDude on YouTube, where he discusses British politics, identity politics and much besides.

Clinton vs Trump, Labour vs Momentum and Theresa May vs Brexit are our three bouts for this week’s triple header podcast.
As the strife in Labour mounted following the EU referendum, its former leader Neil Kinnock told a meeting of the party’s MPs: “Dammit this is our party! I’ve been in it for 60 years! I’m not leaving it to anybody!”
The sentiment was repeated, albeit in milder form, by the former leadership hopeful Liz Kendall in an interview with GQ last week.
“I’m not going to leave my party,” she said. “I am not going to give up my party to people who do not represent what we believe.”
Who exactly the “we” or the “our” Kinnock and Kendall refer to is unclear in the above statements.
Indeed, the tussle over Britain’s major leftwing party has revealed a complex ownership that underpins any large organisation.
