Good evening, listeners! We have a European election special for you this week as host Richard Aldous speaks with George Walden about Theresa May’s bad day before discussing Macron’s ascendance with Benjamin Haddad.

First, George Walden, a former diplomat and government minister, discusses the Tories’ disastrous day at the polls late last week, and what this means for Theresa May and the UK going forward.

Then, Benjamin Haddad, a research fellow at Hudson Institute, speaks with Richard about French president Emmanuel Macron’s remarkable ascent to power, and his party’s surprising victory in Parliamentary elections over the weekend.
