This edition of our Heads apart? podcast asks whether Britain’s constitution is fit for purpose. We explore whether Parliament’s recent prorogation was justified, the clash between representative and direct democracy and the changing nature of an MP’s role. We are joined by Professor Vernon Bogdanor, Research Professor at the Centre for British Politics and Government at King’s College London, and Iain Martin, Founder of Reaction and a columnist for The Times.

Political analysis today can be shouty and superficial, with people shaming and stereotyping those who disagree with them. We take a different approach. Our podcast brings together people with different views to engage in respectful, thoughtful and detailed discussion on major political and cultural issues.
