This week Mark was unable to make it, but I was joined by Liberal conservative blogger and contributor to Platform 10 Nick Denys.

Nick and I talked all things fiscal in advance of the budget and also covered the many (many) plots swirling around the Tory party and what that all means for their electoral chances.

Episode 50 of the House of Comments podcast “I’m a liberal and I’m against this sort of thing” was recorded on Sunday and is out today. This week Mark could not make it but I was joined by Liberal Democrat Linda Jack and former Liberal Democrat Jo Shaw who dramatically resigned from the party on the conference stage during a debate on Secret Courts on the day of recording.

We discuss Secret Courts, party leaderships being out of touch with their members, the differences between Labour and the Lib Dems and how women in politics and public life are treated.

Please note that the sound quality on Jo’s line was not great but you can hear what she says OK.

Episode 44 of the House of Comments podcast “The Death of the High Street” was recorded on Sunday and is out today. This week myself and Mark Thompson discuss the future of the economy in the context of the recently announced high street troubles for HMV, Jessops, Blockbuster and before them Comet and others. How will our country and its workforce adjust to the new realities and can the state plan for this future or should we just go with the flow? It’s false dichotomy-a-go-go as Mark & I go head to head!

Episode 43 of the House of Comments podcast “the One with the Onesie” was recorded on Sunday and is out today. This week myself and Mark Thompson are joined by Conservative activist and former PPC Charlotte Vere to discuss the government relaunch, childcare reform, Labour’s proposals for regulating landlords and we all reveal whether or not any of us own a Onesie like Nick Clegg.

There were some slight technical issues on the Skype call we used to record this it so occasionally the voices break up a bit although it gets better towards the end. Apologies for this.
