Richard Angell and James O'Malley on House of Comments - Episode 32

The latest "House of Comments" podcast with myself and Stuart Sharpe of the Sharpe's Opinion blog is now live. The 32nd episode which we recorded on Tuesday 29th June is available to download raw mp3 file here or you can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes here.

The format is to invite political bloggers on each week to discuss a few of the stories that are making waves in the blogosphere.

This week we were joined by Richard Angell, Deputy Director of Progress, and James O’Malley of the Pod Delusion podcast.

We discussed whether the recent rebellion of two Lib Dem MPs show that the coalition is starting to crack, Diane Abbott's "This Week" meltdown, whether it is cost effective to hold cabinet meetings outside of London and the consequences of the claims that freelance photographer Jules Mattsson was harassed by police last weekend.

If you are a political blogger and would like to participate in the future, please drop me an e-mail here.

As usual a very interesting discussion. One point that I think is worth making about VAT is that surveys show that it is the tax the public least mind having raised. Surely this is one reason why VAT was chosen as opposed as to income tax?
