Pompey Politics Podcast: Do We Value Our Democracies?

Pompey’s favourite party political podcast returns with hosts Ian ‘Tiny’ Morris and Simon Sansbury. In this week’s episode, Ian and Simon talk about recent events in the USA, threats from President Trump to ‘send in the military’ and the ending of the UK virtual parliament. Listener Ivy Burrows joins them to discuss ideas on how democratic accountability could be improved and how elections and political institutions could be dragged into the 21st century.


Do we value our democracies ?

Do we value our democracy? We discuss events in the United States of America, in Parliament and closer to home as we what we do when those representing us say and do things we vehemently disagree with.
