James O'Brien's Blistering Take On Crisis In British Politics
Watch James O'Brien's blistering take on the crisis in British politics.
This is James O'Brien's blistering take on the nearly unprecedented crisis in British politics, which impacts us all.
Talking on his LBC show, James said that both sides are guilty of blaming any criticism of their views as part of a "conspiracy" against them.
James says while the Tory party has torn itself apart over the EU Referendum, the Labour Party leadership believes any criticism of it over anti-Semitism is part of a right wing conspiracy and we all suffer because of it.
"I can't quite remember ever thinking that the situation facing our country politically was as bleak as it is today."
"Not just because of the mess that has been made by the Machiavellian manoeuvring of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and a few others, as they drag half the country off a cliff while telling us the we would be able to fly and shouting at people who were mentioning gravity.”
"Denouncing them as experts, demonising them as part of some sort of elite. That's happening on one side of the house and its affecting the whole flipping country.”
"On the other side of the house you have a leader who truly believes that people like me, who are utterly un-persuaded by his abilities as a leader are somehow in the pocket of right wing media manipulators."
Watch as he lets rip at the malaise in our political system.
