A NEW Look at the United Kingdom with Tom Tugendhat

Play
Read more

The crisis we face has in many ways opened the world’s eyes to the malevolence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and strengthened a growing bipartisan consensus on the national security threats this regime poses. And once the dust settles, Congress looks poised to take a number of actions that will re-evaluate our relationships with China, from bringing pharmaceutical manufacturing back to the U.S. to examining other areas of overreliance on the country. But is this bipartisan shift unique to the United States, or are our Western allies also waking up to this threat as well? What will the global landscape look like once this pandemic ends, and how have other countries around the world responded to this crisis?

To explore these questions, Rep. Gallagher is joined by Tom Tugendhat, a British Member of Parliament and chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, on this week’s NEW Look podcast. Despite being a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, Tom’s an all-around good dude who has been thinking thoughtfully on how the United Kingdom can reassess its relationship with China and what Western alliances can do to protect democracies today and in the future. But the two don’t just talk about geopolitics — Tom also teaches Mike a few things about British politics and cricket, all while ensuring his daughter Beatrice is able to watch “Shaun the Sheep.”

POLITICO's Rym Momtaz (in Paris), Andrew Gray (in Brussels), Matt Kartnischnig (in Berlin) and Annabelle Dickson (in London) bring you the latest from their respective capitals. For France, that includes the question of whether local elections will go ahead and, if they do, how the outbreak could affect the result.
