This was a particularly difficult @restispolitics episode to record as @rorystewartuk was struggling to get to a World Cup match. We got there in the end and covered Labour and the constitutional review, my memories of GW Bush, how S Africa President Ramaphosa is facing a bit of bother thanks to half a million bucks down the side of the sofa, and much much more. LINK IN BIO and also with some news re our Albert Hall event next week ...

She has no interest in 🚴‍♀️ whatsoever but loved the story. Sport transcends!! ...

He is towards the top end of the fee scale for paid public speaking engagements. But he speaks regularly, pro bono, for charitable, political and educational events.
