Where Did Our £3 Billion Go? (with Layla Moran MP)

Play
Read more

A legal action is being brought by three MPs and the Good Law Project to force the government to account for £3 billion spent on private contracts during the pandemic.


Layla Moran, Liberal Democrat MP for Oxford West and Abingdon and the chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Coronavirus is one of them. She tells Bloomberg Westminster's Sebastian Salek and Roger Hearing public spending must be accounted for. Moran also says Boris Johnson's actions so far haven't done enough to stem the virus or help the economy, but led to the worst of both.


Plus, are the tribes that blossomed during the Brexit referendum here to stay? Robert Ford, professor of political science at Manchester University, joins to discuss his book Brexitland, which argues that Leave and Remain is about much more than EU membership.

This is an exciting and an unprecedented time for Layla Moran. At the time of recording this podcast Layla was only days away from knowing if she had won the battle to become the newly appointed Leader of the Liberal Democrat. VOTE LAYLA

This podcast is all about the inner workings of the mindset not only of a political candidate that is running to head up her party but the human being behind the media frenzy. I liken the mindset in this heightened time to that of anyone who has worked hard in their career waiting to hear if they have been appointed the life changing job they have always wanted or to the actor waiting to get the call to see if they have a lead in the latest blockbuster or to the athlete waiting to run the race that could potentially get them into the Olympics. Everyone copes with the pressure differently but the goal to succeed rarely varies.

Layla and her team have been working hard although COVID-19 to create an ongoing, solely online campaign, never been done before.

Her experience as a former Teacher, Local Activist and Member of Parliament has taught her immeasurably about the skills to becoming a successful leader. Check out the podcast today to hear her thoughts on leadership, mindset under pressure and her personal story that has taken her to this potentially very exciting time...
