New Gov – Michael Crick on the MPs of tomorrow
Wednesday, 9 November
When there is finally a general election, what will the next batch of MPs look like? With parties deep into selection processes, who is going to be thrust upon us – and who’s being blocked? Journalist, author and Channel 4 legend Michael Crick, who runs Tomorrow’s MPs on Twitter, talks to Andrew Harrison about our future parliamentarians.
“The left is doing appallingly within the Labour selections.”
“Starmer can’t be seen to interfere too much – that can be the kiss of death for a candidate.”
“There is a process of weeding people out on the grounds of their politics.”
“When local parties are choosing members of Parliament, they’re also choosing potential future ministers.”
