This week we talk to Mark Garnett, senior lecturer at Lancaster University in Politics, about the changing role of the Prime Minister and his new book “The British Prime Minister in an Age of Upheaval”. We talk about the motivations of individuals (duty and public service or ego and money?), the role of devolution and what the role of PM will look like in the future.
On the eve of the UK general election 2019, we explore everything you need to know about the general election, as well as a bit of the history and interesting facts surrounding the whole process.
An episode from our swapcast, where I spoke to Dave over at the Freaking Hambone Show (@hb_show) earlier this week.
Today we looked back across history to pick out the Prime Ministers who had the worst start to their careers in Number 10. This is about what they did, what they didn’t do and also what they inherited limited to the first few months of their premiership.
