Chopper’s Politics: Cracks in the Red Wall, Lee Anderson on being a Tory, and indyref2 | Podcast

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Chopper’s Politics: Cracks in the Red Wall, Lee Anderson on being a Tory, and indyref2 | Podcast” – below is their description.

This week saw SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon made her intentions very clear to hold an indyref2, just 8 years since the last “once in a lifetime” referendum in 2014. But is her move legal? Former Conservative Scottish Secretary David Mundell joins Christopher Hope to unpack what exactly is going on.

Also joining Chris in the Red Lion pub this week is MP for Ashfield Lee Anderson, who’s courted controversy recently for comments over foodbanks. He popped by and also gave his twopence on Steve Bray, the anti-Brexit campaigner whose speakers were confiscated by the police earlier this week.

And finally, Chris speaks to Phillip Lee on what it takes to cross the floor and switch parties, in the wake of reports that as many as six Red Wall Tories could be looking to defect.
