George Osborne’s latest budget, this week’s climate change conference in Paris, and Brunel students’ spurning of rent-a-gob Katie Hopkins are the subjects of our latest episode, in which Jimmy and Jazza sound off about subjects they are vaguely familiar with.
To begin we cover the chancellor’s reversal on tax credit reform, a move that would have been more embarrassing if the shadow chancellor John McDonnell hadn’t responded by reading a passage from communist tyrant Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book.
Next on the agenda is the climate change conference in Paris that is COP21. Whilst trying to work out what that stands for we discuss whether the hundredth episode of the podcast will be broadcast from under the sea.
Lastly we return again to Katie Hopkins, a Daily Mail columnist subject to vigorous protests when she spoke on welfare at Brunel University. Is tribalism ruining politics?
