The Pod Delusion

The Second Worst Foreign Policy Disaster Since WW2

January 10, 2020

This week we calibrate our worries about the potential for World War 3 by talking to former Middle East minister and Chair of the Intelligence Committee Kim Howells - who tells us about his personal experience negotiating with Iran. We also dig into Dominic Cummings' plan to reform the civil service, and celebrate the passage of the Withdrawal Agreement by learning about what has now been bumped down to number two on the list of Britain's biggest foreign policy disasters: The Suez Crisis.
