#14 Democracy at some point! A podcast coming to a rotten borough near you.

In this podcast, Steve Haynes and I discuss the local election results. We discuss whether General Petraeus is behind the UKIP surge, what David Cameron’s fruitcake policy should be, and whether the Tories (and voters) could benefit by changing the voting system. We also applaud the Electoral Reform Society for their marvellous campaign into Rotten Boroughs. Mainly though, this podcast is Steve going into full soapbox-cum-West-Wing-inspirational-speech mode when talking about how to combat UKIP, and Cory making lots of silly jokes. Hope you enjoy it!

#13 Democracy at some point! A podcast that, where there is error, may we bring truth

Former Prime Ministers have been in the news this week. Yep, Tony Blair has written for the New Statesman. In this podcast we discuss the legacy of Margaret Thatcher. Cory calls her a very dangerous moderate in a remark that will undoubtedly be taken out of context in the future. Also, Steve tries to remain ambivalent and instead wonders why people don't hate Eden more than Thatcher. As is custom, we also finish on a song.

#12 Democracy At Some Point! A podcast clinging resolutely to the centre ground

#12 Democracy at some point! A podcast clinging resolutely to the centre ground

In this week's podcast we talk about the Eastleigh by-election. We discuss the campaign, what the Tories should do (and what they will actually do) and whether the result heralds the death of the two-party system. Hope you enjoy it!

#11 Democracy at some point! A podcast that will never be the subject of positive discrimination

In this first podcast of 2013 (better late than never) we talk about the tedious referendums that are coming up in the next few years. We talk about the EU, Scotland, whether Parliament is too middle class, and our angry backbencher of the week is very angry about "The Jews". Hope you enjoy it!

No. 10 Democracy at some point! A podcast that´s an ethical vacuum

Due to technical issues (i.e. being away from the internet for three weeks) this is a podcast recorded in early December about the Leveson inquiry. We talk about the report, what its recommendations are and their political implications. Democracy at some point wishes everyone a wonderful holiday period and a 2013 filled with fun, frolics and democratic reform.

#8 Democracy at some point! We're like Democracy Now! but a little bit more British

In this podcast we focus on events across the pond in a US election special. We talk about democratic reform issues about the US election, such as the electoral system and party funding, Steve discusses his love of Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, and our special guest waxes lyrical about Barack Obama. We also say nice things about Mitt Romney's hair, and make some predictions about the Senate, the Presidency and the popular vote. Hope you like it!

#7 Democracy at some point! A podcast with one notion: talking.

In this episode we talk all about coalition politics. We discuss how the coalition might break up in 2015, the prospects of coalitions after 2015, and which comes first: the egg of pluralism or the chicken of proportional representation. Hope you like it!
