The Rest Is Politics

Goalhanger Podcasts

Two men who’ve been at the heart of the political world - former Downing Street Director of Communications and Strategy Alastair Campbell and cabinet minister Rory Stewart - join forces from across the political divide. The Rest Is Politics lifts the lid on the secrets of Westminster, offering an insider’s view on politics at home and abroad, while bringing back the lost art of disagreeing agreeably.

  • Half baked or biased

    So many holes in the facts about India and bias against Modi. Cannot say when it comes to India it’s the colonial hangover or loyalty to George Soros

  • Not great boys

    Alistair is consistently too overbearing with his views. So the net effect is the show is becoming a bit too left not balanced. It’s not the Alistair show ? Or is it ?
