Johnson Gets His Mandate

David Runciman, Helen Thompson and guests

David, Helen and other Talking Politics regulars gather the morning after the Tory triumph the night before to discuss how they did it and what it means.  From Swinson's hubris to Corbyn's comeuppance, from Scottish independence to constitutional challenges, from the start of Brexit to the end of the Brexit party, we try to cover it all in a bumper edition. 

With Chris Brooke, Chris Bickerton, Alison Young, Peter Sloman, Kenneth Armstrong, and more.
