  • Bring back the old format

    As much as I do find some of the conversations interesting, I preferred the previous format a few years ago with Jess Elgot and/or Heather Stewart as hosts. John Harris interrupts all the time. The previous hosts had the right balance of giving their views without taking over or shutting down other contributors. It was also good to get reaction to PMQs straight after.

  • On smoking!

    John shush and let people finish their arguments - it’s not entertaining, it’s infuriating and you are wrong sometines.

  • Meh

    I hate to say it but a new host is needed. Too left wing, to adversarial and quite miserable. I debate whether it’s worth listening to this every time now.
