The Downtown Den Politics Podcast | 28th November 2023

The government gains temporary approval with tax cuts, but faces criticism from New Conservatives after latest immigration figures, marking a controversial political issue ahead of GE.

However, the New Conservatives, as the new model rebels have labelled themselves, were back on the warpath 24 hours later, as the latest immigration figures were released.

This the latest episode of the Downtown Den Politics Podcast with Frank McKenna and Jim Hancock.
