In a special anniversary episode, Jack Blanchard looks back at the seminal general election of December 2019, with help from experts and insiders from all the main campaign teams.
Tory campaign chief Isaac Levido reveals the secrets behind Boris Johnson’s slick election-winning machine, including the all-important “Get Brexit Done” slogan. Jeremy Corbyn’s policy supremo Andrew Fisher rues the unforced errors and the impossible circumstances which led the Labour Party to its worst defeat in years. The Brexit Party’s Gawain Towler and Lib Dem peer Dorothy Thornhill reveal the wildly contrasting fortunes of the minor parties in 2019. And political scientist Professor Rob Ford of Manchester University explains the findings of his team’s major new study of the election — and why Boris Johnson’s landslide victory could easily have been far bigger.
