UK Local Elections: What They Do/Do Not Mean, What To Know, & What‘s Next w/ Harrison Griffiths

1h 9m | May 7, 2024

Your Heard Tell Show is turning down the noise of the news cycle and getting to the information we need to discern our times by heading across the pond as Harris Griffiths returns to Heard Tell to talk the recent UK local elections, what the results may mean for the looming general elections, changing political coalitions, futures of PM Rishi Sunak and soon-to-be PM Keir Starmer, breaking down the current state of the major parties, and more. Harrison also uses his knowledge of American political history to use some comparisons between American and the UK to explain what is different, what is similar, and why everyone everywhere should be paying attention to the changes politically and culturally inside the UK like the post-Brexit realignments, rise of "sectarian" voting, economic issues, a general British weariness of politics, and how both hard times and good times can give rise to extremism minus strong leadership.

All that and more on this episode of Heard Tell.
