DePfeffel Pig and the Very Hard Speech

OH GOD, WHAT NOW? Formerly Remainiacs

Episode 64 Season 1
1h 3min

As Johnson makes a pig's ear out of his speech to the CBI, and with unrest sizzling on the Tory backbenches over social care, is the Prime Minister in danger of getting smoked out, or can he use red meat to buy off his MPs? Plus continental Europe is facing a fourth wave of COVID, reaching case rates the UK has seen for months! Will Britain avoid another lockdown, and are we changing our behaviour as Christmas approaches? Naomi, Dorian and Alex are joined by special guest Gavin Esler on this week’s show.

  • “Johnson turning up and winging his speech is effectively another way of saying ‘fuck business’.” - Alex Andreou
  • “I hate commentators using the word ‘authentic’, some people are authentically shit.” - Gavin Esler 
  • “Johnson is under attack from all groups in the party, this makes it very difficult for him to buy them off.” - Naomi Smith
  • “One person I think has a good chance is Jeremy Hunt. He’s biding his time, outside the cabinet of disasters.” - Gavin Esler
  • “The UK became desensitised after the 80,000 death second wave, something that other European countries didn’t go through.” - Alex Andreou
