Does Boris Johnson have the answers?Questions too are beginning to be asked of China, both in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and more broadly about its global role. Conservative MP for the Isle of Wight Bob Seely joins Arj Singh, Paul Waugh and Rachel Wearmouth to talk about the government’s test and trace app, the UK’s failure to learn from Asia, and how the government can manage the economy post-recession.Make sense of politics.

Bob Seely Interview

I Love Wight Podcast

We caught up with Isle Of Wight MP Mr Bob Seely back in June this year to explore his love of the Island and in the process uncovered much more than we bargained for. When is England's largest Island not an Island? When it's the Isle of Wight apparently, or at least that was the view in Westminster until the Island's MP, Bob Seely, together with the Isle of Wight Council started to fight for change. If you have always wondered what the Isle of Wight's MP does, and what motivates him, listen in for some answers and insight.

Jim O'Neill, Lucy Neville-Rolfe and Bob Seely on Global Britain

The CapX Podcast

Free Exchange, the CapX podcast, is back with an exciting new series of interviews and conversations. In the coming months, we'll be welcoming a fascinating line up of politicians, policymakers, authors, economists and journalists on to the show to talk about some of the biggest questions we face today.We’re kicking things off with a live recording of a CapX event at Conservative Party Conference on what the term “global Britain” really means.It’s a phrase ministers and Brexit supporters are fond of using when laying out their vision for Britain after it leaves the European Union. But is it anything more than a soundbite? And if so, what should it mean for government policy?Our three guests were all, in their own ways, well-placed to consider these issues. Jim O’Neill is the economist famous for coining the term Brics who went on to work with George Osborne on the Northern Powerhouse. He now sits as a crossbench peer in the house of lords and earlier this year was appointed Chair of Chatham House.The second guest was Lucy Neville-Rolfe. Lucy is a former businesswomen who is now a Conservative member of the house of lords and who, like Jim has also been involved in economic policymaking, serving as commercial secretary to the treasury under Philip Hammond until last summer.Last but not least was Bob Seely MP. Bob is the Conservative MP for the Isle of Wight and a member of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee. He’s also a CapX contributor. Our GDPR privacy policy was updated on August 8, 2022.
