The Political Party


Show 280 - *David Davis LIVE*

The first ever Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union delivers his comprehensive verdict on Boris Johnson's government. David is typically candid and gives a great insight into the Brexit negotiations and his relationship with Michel Barnier. He also tells us the reason he resigned from Theresa May's government when he did (and who he told in advance), plus the riveting story of how he came to call on Boris Johnson to resign. This is packed with brilliant inside stories from the most tumultuous period in recent history.

Show 288 - David Gauke

What better time to interview a moderate former Tory MP who spent 7 years in the Treasury? David Gauke does not disappoint and is fully uncorked in this entertaining analysis of the Tories' current economic policy and the people driving it. David's story is fascinating. He went from leading Cabinet minister to ex MP within just a few months and now considers himself politically homeless. How did this happen to one of the Tories' most prominent and capable performers? It's probably not that hard to figure out but David tells his story with typical wit and warmth. He also reminisces about the coalition years, including the political legacy of austerity.  Follow David on Twitter: @DavidGauke See Matt's completely rewritten stand-up show Clowns To The Left Of Me, Jokers to the Right on the following dates: Tues 18 Oct - Leicester Square TheatreFri 21 Oct - Bloomsbury TheatreFri 28 Oct - Bloomsbury Theatre Tickets: Buy tickets to The Political Party, live at The Duchess Theatre here: Forthcoming guests include: 3 Oct: Mick Lynch17 Oct: Grant Shapps7 Nov: David Dimbleby14 Nov: Matt Hancock5 Dec: Rachel Reeves Read David's New Statesman piece: Read David's ConservativeHome piece on Kwarsi Kwarteng's Budget:
