Coffee House Shots

500 EpisodesProduced by The SpectatorWebsite

Instant political analysis from the Spectator's top team of writers, including Fraser Nelson, James Forsyth, Isabel Hardman, Katy Balls and many others.


New year new Keir?

Keir Starmer arrived in Birmingham today to deliver his agenda-setting speech, outlining Labour's vision for the future. The opposition leader had to tread the delicate path between offering a substantial, policy-based agenda whilst holding his cards close to his chest.

'One of the challenges of opposition in the midterm is, they come up with new policy and then the government pinches it' - James Forsyth.

Also on the podcast, James and Isabel discuss the reaction to the news that Tony Blair is to be awarded a knighthood. The former prime minister is a controversial choice for some, raking up to 500,000 signatures on a petition demanding to reverse the decision. For others, the question is: why has it taken this long?

Cindy Yu is joined by Isabel Hardman and James Forsyth.
