Marina Purkiss, a feisty political commentator, was my guest on today’s show. I first came across Marina seeing her appear on Jeremy Vine and thought she would be a fascinating guest to have on the show. In this discussion, we spent a lot of time discussing whether Labour and the Tories are just two sides of the same coin, whether we need to abandon both parties in order to allow something new to flourish, and if Kier Starmer and the Labour party will actually fix any of the problems we are facing as a country. It was a really interesting debate in which we agree on a lot but draw different conclusions on how we should move forwards and act!
