All Out Politics
2021 - Reasons to be optimistic?
Thursday, 7 January
Adam Boulton and guests discuss a significant couple of weeks in politics in the UK and the US and look ahead to the political events of 2021.
They reflect on the shocking scenes in Washington DC as Congress prepared to confirm Joe Biden as the next US President, the free trade agreement between the UK and the EU and the latest on the Coronavirus pandemic as the vaccine rollout coincides with the majority of people in the UK in lockdown.
And they'll assess what's in store in 2021 with local elections, a transition of power in America, the COP Climate Change conference in Glasgow and a potential reshuffle on the cards.
Joining Adam this week are:
The co-founder of Britain Thinks and the author of 'Beyond the Red Wall' Deborah Mattinson, Professor of Politics at Queen Mary University of London, Tim Bale and Sky's deputy political editor Sam Coates.
