Customer Reviews

Excellent multi-view analysis by grown ups

Center left with Julian providing the Conservative party slant. Great way to keep up with UK politics.

Best poli podcast on the web

The other reviewer is a nut -- it doesn't get better than this Guardian podcast. Political "slant" is left-center of course. Eminently bright & witty conversation to be had here.

[8/25/11 addendum: "Let's all pencil in a 30-day vacation for August! That's certain to be a slow news month."]

Conservative Flak

This podcast seems to be an extension of the Conservative Party perspective. It is not balanced, so the listener should have the expectation of such bias. There may be better sources for fair-minded discussion of the issues, especially as relating to the PM. Not all that Labour does is bad - in fact, Labour has done some great things that have made the UK one of the best places to live.
