LIVE at 6PM

It’s a year since Boris Johnson first entered Downing Street.

He’s won an election, steered Brexit and had a brush with death.  He’s also shut down the nation and faced criticism over aspects of the government’s handling of the pandemic.

Tonight’s Live with Littlewood puts Boris under the spotlight.

Join host Mark Littlewood as he and a stellar panel of broadcasters, journalists, commentators and think tankers discuss Boris: Hero or Zero?

They’ll also turn their attentions to the mounting tensions between East and West.  Are Russian agents acting with impunity in the UK?  And will this push us ever closer to a new cold war?

And – assuming they’re allowed – they’ll discuss cancel culture.  Is it the new freedom of expression – or a threat to free speech?

Taking part in tonight’s free-rolling programme are Times columnist Iain MartintalkRADIO’s Mike Graham, award-winning author and comedian Leo Kearse and the Spectator’s China reporter Cindy Yu.

They’ll be joined by City AM’s Rachel Cunliffe, ConservativeHome’s Mark Wallace, political journalist Benedict SpenceJohn O’Connell of the Taxpayers’ Alliance and IEA author and historian Dr. Stephen Davies.

JOIN IN THE DEBATE – LIVE at 6.00 p.m. – HERE or on YouTube.

Gareth Southgate’s Brexit Comments Slapped Down

England Manager Gareth Southgate has become the latest footballer to weigh in on Brexit. He told an ITV 4 documentary broadcast last night that he thought the “undertones of voting on Brexit were racial undertones.” On today’s Politics Live, ConservativeHome’s Mark Wallace delivered two key rebuttals to this tired Remainer refrain.

  1. “There is a huge difference between the idea that some people who voted leave were very concerned about immigration, or the right to control borders and choose your own immigration policy democratically, and ‘racial undertones.’ I think those are different things.”
  2. “The Prime Minister, if anything in this deal, she’s prioritised immigration above all other things, particularly above wider sovereignty and democracy in the UK, and leave voters don’t like it.”

Southgate is wrong and Wallace is right, voting Leave was about the fundamental question of who governs Britain, not solely the question of immigration…
