‘This has nothing to do with rock ‘n’ roll, it’s a metaphor’ - so if you’re after an hour of Elvis this is perhaps not the show for you. However, if you’re interested in learning more about British politic - and not just the dull dates and statistics but all the behind the scenes drama from murder plots to flying typewriters - you’re in for a treat.
A mixture between a lecture and stand-up, Steve Richards’ show provides the opportunity to gain a better understanding of what is going on in politics - because, let’s face it, how many of us actually understand it? Over the course of the hour he covers topics from Macmillan to the Referendum via a rather entertaining incident involving an anthill in Kettering. Richards’ passion for the topic is infectious and even the most sceptical of observers will have their interest pricked by his behind the scenes tales of a turbulent political world.
At the end of the session there is a Q&A segment in which the audience has the opportunity to ask any political question they want -how often do you have access to an expert who has spent the last twelve years as the Chief Political Commentator for The Independent?
This show is a fantastic opportunity to be entertained and educated in equal measure and to ask that question about the coalition that has been niggling at you for months. The show changes every day as there is so much material to cover so I can’t tell you exactly what you’ll hear, but it will be thoroughly interesting and amusing - I just hope he keeps the anthill story in.
