    Ep 168: Biden Gone, Grifting USA and Tech Hell

    Ep 168: Biden Gone, Grifting USA and Tech Hell

    Biden has stood down! But, before the Trawl ladies get to that, they want to discuss the Crowdstrike bug which hit Microsoft hard. People in offices were crossing their fingers Teams would go down too so they could leave early, some poor souls had their flights cancelled or experienced other huge inconveniences, others didn't even notice.

    Then, it's off to the States where it's all happening. Or, not happening in Biden's case. President Biden will not be running against Trump and for the good of the party is endorsing Kamala Harris. There's plenty of reaction to trawl plus the embarrassment of Farage and Truss trying to be relevant and pretending they're part of the inner circle. Hilarious clips prove otherwise. Liz who? 


    Emily Maitlis gives an interviewing masterclass and you won't believe what someone who owns 19 air rifles does for a living. 


    Stuffed with clips galore this is a digest which will make you concur with one of the Under Rated Tweets by Labour MP Chris Bryant who said There are many flaws in the UK constitution but the fact that we can change the party of government in the twinkling of an eye with minimal fuss and without preposterous claims of a stolen election is a pearl of great price. Some countries take months, we take hours

    EP 167: Labour highs & lows & Cameo grifting

    EP 167: Labour highs & lows & Cameo grifting

    This episode starts with a sobering chat about the recent murder of Carol, Louise and Hannah Hunt. The three women were killed brutally leaving a sister and father behind. Marina and Jemma ponder the fact that a woman is killed by a man, in her own home, every three days. A shocking statistic which surely requires immediate attention. 

    Then the talk turns to Labour and the good and bad things they’ve been up to this week. Wes Streeting banning puberty blockers provokes a discussion as does the picture of Lammy shaking hands with Netanyahu. 


    Meanwhile, Farage is selling himself on Cameo which leads to a clip Jemma insists on playing for context, despite the fact Marina has serious reservations about its suitability!


    Pudding is incredibly moving.

    Ep 166: Trump Assassination Attempt - Ear we go

    Football isn’t coming home - again. So where are we on Southgate? Is he a legend? Or a roaring disappointment? 

    And then, where were you when you found out that someone tried to assassinate Trump? 


    Marina and Jemma delve into what this shocking news might mean. Does it mean the election is in the bag for the Republican Party? 


    And who is JD Vance and why is his appointment as Vice President so depressing if not surprising?


    Then it’s under rated tweets. Cilla’s gone international! 


    And pudding is related to the Trump news. 


    Poignant.

    Ep 165: Starmer's Cabinet and Right Wing Meltdowns

    Ep 165: Starmer's Cabinet and Right Wing Meltdowns

    Labour are off the starting blocks and at quite a pace. Jemma and Marina discuss everything that's happened since the Labour government got into power which, in a nutshell, is more than the Tories have achieved in 14 years. Inspired appointments include putting James Timpson in charge of prisons, Miliband in charge of climate and a Minister for Education who respects teachers. What are the chances? 

    It might well be a honeymoon period but the Trawl ladies will take it for as long as it lasts. Over in France there's been a result and a half too the French fascists are almost as upset as they are about a Labour win over at GB News and The Telegraph. There they're having a full blown meltdown as is Camilla Tominey who features in Under Rated Tweets of the week. 


    Tonnes of clips and tweets as ever and pudding is served by Matilda Thorpe.

    Ep 164: Election Night - the highs, the lows and all the funny bits

    The first Trawl under a Labour government is here! Jemma and Marina relive the high and low lights from 4th July, particularly enjoying the dynamic between Alastair Campbell and Nadine Dorries on Channel 4 and Andrew Marr's sign off to Mogg. They also say goodbye to some big Tory scalps, wonder at some of the ones remaining and discuss the results and the complex issue of PR. After all, in reality, Reform should have won a great deal more MP's than they did. 

    Then there's time to hear a few words from an AI generated version on Gareth Southgate plus one of the best Under Rated Clips which stars Captain Wes Streeting who really commits to a ship analogy which gets so out of control, the ship in question could well be The Titanic.

    The Trawl Meets: Jess Phillips

    The Trawl Meets: Jess Phillips

    Jemma and Marina were thrilled when Labour MP, Jess Phillips, agreed to take time out of her mad diary for a proper chinwag. 

    The Trawl ladies were fascinated to know how it feels being a female MP during such febrile times and found out what motivates her to keep going. At time of record, Rishi Sunak, hadn't surprised everyone by calling the election so unexpectedly early but Labour were in election mode nonetheless, and Marina and Jemma took the opportunity to find out what Jess makes of Natalie Elphicke's defection from the Tory party and, how it felt when she quit the front bench in 2023 over Keir Starmer's stance on Gaza, after voting in the Commons for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict. 

    They discuss the work she does in her role as Minister for Domestic Violence and Safeguarding, and her podcast with Beth Rigby and Ruth Davidson, Electoral Dysfunction and ask the question everyone wants answered - will Labour become more 'left' if/when they get into power.

    Ep 163: The One before the Election and Glasto Outrage

    As Independence Day (from the Tories) looms, Jemma and Marina have gone bumper with this extra long Trawl. They start with a footy update and then dive into the post match analysis of... Glastonbury. Why do all the right-wing bell-ends get so triggered by it? What is it about the musical, magical, cultural playground that annoys them so much? 

    Then, it's into politics we go with a quick round of 'what are the Tories lying about now?' and a look at the desperate lengths The Telegraph are going to to persuade you that Labour equals Armageddon. 


    Still, if you think things here are bad, wait till you hear the clips of Biden and Trump trying to string sentences together, It's disturbing to say the least. 


    And, with one day to go before we get to place our crosses in the ballot box, the rest of the ep is dedicated to remembering why it's s important we don't feel complacent, that we vote and that we make our vote count. 


    Good luck Trawlers - can't wait to meet again soon for all the best takes, for a look back and indeed a look forward.

    Ep 162: Safe Southgate, Fascey-Farage and what the hell is a supermajority?

    England are top of the group in the Euros, two clean sheets, and unbeaten - so why aren't we all ecstatic? Jemma and Marina discuss some of the best reactions to Southgate's 'safe' approach with a self-deprecating treat from Danny Dyer.

    Then from football to fascism, as the ladies visit the latest public soilings from the man who just makes it up as he goes along - Nigel Farage. They discuss his dodgy as hell position on Russia and you won't believe who has been offering their support to Mr Farage on his X account...all the way from the Kremlin!


    Then it's onto the Tories who have spent the last week trying to convince everyone that a supermajority is a thing - it ain't. 


    Then some superb underrated tweets and clips with an absolute belter via the grandson of Churchill and a brief mention of The Telegraph who appear to be losing their minds more so than usual. 


    Finally, a superb and heart-warming monologue from comedian John Oliver inspires Marina to do her very own election call-to-arms. 


    All wrapped up with a football-themed from Paddy Power.

    Ep 161: Tetchy Sunak, Tory Bets and an Army Spat

    This episode kicks off with a look at how Starmer and Sunak did on the recent Question Time. We're not saying it went badly for Sunak but the PM was booed very loudly at the end so...

    And then Jemma and Marina decide to have a flutter. They bet that the Tories will cheat and lie their way right up to the election and it looks like they're both set to win because the latest scandal to hit the beleaguered party is 'fluttergate'. Wrongdoing has been admitted by AI generated Tory, Craig Williams, and yet Sunak chose to do nothing apart from put on an 'I'm angry face' for days on end. Still, he got there in the end. 

    And then it's off to Plymouth to trawl through what Johnny Mercer has accused his Labour opponent, Fred Thomas, of. Warning - it's not dignified. 

    The ladies finish with Under Rated Tweets as per and an invitation to a party. 

    Pudding is by the Exploding Heads - enjoy!

    Ep 160: Farage Exposed and AI Patriotism

    Ep 160: Farage Exposed and AI Patriotism

    Depressingly, this episode mainly reflects what's dominating the news, the headlines and indeed social media and, it's Farage. The man is everywhere, like a stain you simply can't get rid off, partly because Sunak et al have pandered to him for years. 

    Marina and Jemma delve into how quite long he's been disrupting from the side-lines with some extraordinary clips to illustrate. Meanwhile, the Reform manifesto (contract) has been announced and it's holier than a piece of Emmental - fiscal black holes all over the shop. So why do people buy it? With so many people turning to Reform it warrants discussion and means no one is entirely sure who the real opposition will be post election. 


    Then we look at the latest spat of strange AI images created for 'patriotic' reasons by right -wingers though the Trawl ladies think it might be a case of 'too much time on their hands.' They've mainly been inspired by the Trooping of The Colour and Alison Pearson might have had the worst take of all. 


    Some great under rated tweets and clips finish off the ep and pudding is superb and very fitting and is by Larry and Paul and the Broken News team. Enjoy!

    Ep 159: Did they really say that? Campaign travesties, lots of laughs and Macron's gamble

    Ep 159: Did they really say that? Campaign travesties, lots of laughs and Macron's gamble

    What would you do if you saw Boris Johnson coming out of a bush? It's a startling sight but it could happen if he happens to be promoting one of his columns for The Mail. As for his sister, she definitely won't be in a Lidl but might be in a Sainsbury's, you'll know why when you hear the clip. 

    Then we head to the campaign trail for 'The Election Section' and Beth Rigby is the latest presenter to have grilled Sunak and Starmer. Starmer may have done better in that arena but neither are covering themselves in glory with the public. One laughs at a doctor, the other has a tone deaf response to a child's story. Still, not much beats the reception, Esther Macvey got when she made some wild claim about her party. 


    Then to France we go and this is where it becomes apparent that Jemma might have had a night on the tiles and be feeling a little 'fragile' during record. Her French accent is more Del Boy than Del Boy's as Marina points out. Why has Macron called an election? What happened in the EU Parliament elections and why can't Jemma pronounce the word 'effortlessly.' There may be a few laughs in this ep


    Then some truly staggeringly bad takes and a plethora of Under Rated Tweets.

    Ep 158: Sunak gaffes, Michael Mosley and Mordaunt's hair

    Ep 158: Sunak gaffes, Michael Mosley and Mordaunt's hair

    Jemma and Marina barely know where to begin. The Trawl content is simply relentless as the campaign trail continues. However, it seems to makes sense to start with the recently announced Tory manifesto and go from there. The hitting the skids type jokes write themselves. Then it's on to Sunak's latest set of gaffes and the heart-wrenching discovery that he didn't have Sky. The poor widdums, how did he cope? 

    Then it's a rewind as we go back to the debate which featured a member from each of the main parties. It's a good opportunity to hear from Carla Denyer from the Green Party and SNP leader, Stephen Flynn. There's a whole section dedicated to Penny Mordaunt's hair which was truly incredible, for all the wrong reasons. 


    Marina and Jemma are blown away by quite how empty Nigel Farage's policies are when scrutinised and a plea to the people of Clacton to vote for the young Labour candidate who Marina spoke to on the phone. 


    There's a tribute to TV Doctor Michael Mosley and the Trawl ladies feel compelled to mention the ongoing situation in Israel and Palestine. Then it's onto the underrated clips and tweets of the week which are gold. The clip of a Reform candidate talking about why the airport made him go into politics will have you scratching your heads. 


    As ever, The Trawl ladies don't hold back. What a time to be alive!

    Ep 157: D-Day Calamity, Tax Lies and an Ed Davey love-in

    Ep 157: D-Day Calamity, Tax Lies and an Ed Davey love-in

    Jemma and Marina are very excited because in this ep, they are starting off with an actual scoop! Rare on The Trawl but stranger things have happened and we wonder if you'll think it demonstrates what Sunak is really like, and that's before we've even started on his D-Day gaffe.

    Then, the Trawl ladies hear the figure £2000 bandied about any more their heads might explode. Yes, despite Sunak's claims having been called out as the lies they are, his henchman are still pedalling untruths every chance they get. Marina and Jemma unpack the fallout from the ITV debate and one clip, where Starmer and Sunak debate leaving the ECHR, feels particularly poignant given that this week was the week we remembered the fallen during the 80th D-Day memorial.

    World leaders gathered to pay their respects on a day when politics should surely be put aside. You'd think that would be obvious but not to Sunak who 'popped in' to show his face then naffed off back to Britain to go on telly to slander Starmer some more. His own party are horrified and Marina and Jemma don't exactly hold back either.


    Ed Davey gets his own section in this ep and the contrast between him and Sunak could not be more stark. One is a sentient human being, the other left the D-Day memorial service to dash back for some PR. Stay classy Sunak!


    Some fantastic Under rated clips and tweets wrap this one up along with a pudding by Politics Joe.

    Ep 156: Farage fallout, campaigning chaos & Trump's fan club

    It's over the pond we go to see what cheesy wotsit toddler, Trump has been up to... which is being found guilty on 34 counts. The ladies discuss those who leapt to his defence and the common thread that runs through them before finishing with a Trump sandwich: white bread, full of baloney, Russian dressing and a small pickle.

    And while Boris Johnson is still firmly attached to Trump’s bottom, Nigel Farage has chosen to unweld himself and bin off his plans to campaign for Trump in the US - lucky for the US, not so lucky for us. Jemma and Marina discuss what his running means for the election and enjoy some snippets of Farage not doing so well in the face of scrutiny.

    There's talk of Labour highs and lows, Tories posing as Labour and charm lessons from Kemi Badenoch - who manages to appear rude, arrogant and affronted, all at once, in her latest media rounds. 

    Then it's on to some underrated clips and tweets, including a gem from writer, Michael Rosen, followed by a Trump-flavoured pud from Politics Joe.

    Ep 155: Labour's Purge, Conscription Chaos and Telegraph Tits

    With the election looming, all the political parties are trying to grab headlines. The Tories want your children to sign up, whether they like it or not. If they don't want to do military service they'll be forced to volunteer their weekends, even if they need to be earning. 

    Rachel Johnson thinks it's a great idea because they could be forced to pick fruit. After all we don't have anyone else to do it due to her brother's Brexit. Yet despite the Tories best efforts to grab all the headlines by bribing pensioners and threatening conscription, Labour have managed to hog the limelight. What a shame it's for such terrible reasons. Starmer is busy blocking candidates from standing, including Diane Abbott. 


    Jemma and Marina discuss the division in the left and plough through loads of Under Rated Tweets and clips. Pudding is from Larry and Paul.

    The Trawl Meets: James O'Brien

    In this episode, Marina and Jemma meet the person who can, in large part be thanked (blamed?!) for turning their mild interest in politics into a passion - Mr Brexit himself: James O'Brien.

    The LBC star, journalist and best-selling author of books including his latest, How They Broke Britain, for once finds himself on the opposite side of the interrogating questions. They hear about his leap to fame courtesy of Brexit and take a trip down memory lane with some caller clips that never get old. There's some quizzing on James' position on Labour and the looming election, and his surprising thoughts on Proportional Representation, which Marina and James agree to disagree on. Jacob Rees-Mogg gets a due hammering with some fascinating insight on the effect of public school on public servants, and James reluctantly names who, of those responsible for Britain's demise, he'd choose to go for dinner with - and the ladies coax out of him a hilarious, not-so-polite, run-in with Reform Party's Richard Tice.

    Order James O'Brien's book here:

    Ep 154: Election Fever - A brewery, The Titanic and some very Accidental Partridge

    Election is GO! Marina and Jemma happened to be together when the news broke and enjoy sharing what happened next. Then, it's a look back at the most undignified election announcement of all time and what's happened since. The parties have hit the campaign trail running. Although the Tories are looking pretty desolate and have many seats to fill. Still, perhaps in a passive aggressive act of revenge, they've sent Sunak to a brewery in Wales so people can think 'piss up in' and left him talking to Welsh people about The Euros they didn't qualify for.

    Richard Tice is out of the starting blocks too. Just a shame one of the Reform accounts has got the wrong date...only two days out. Vote Reform on July 6th.

    Ep 153: Vorder Force, Suella Silenced and an Unexpected Winner

    This Ep was recorded the morning of the election announcement so the Trawl ladies are busy collating all the best reactions for the next episode. This one unpacks a strange week for Suella but before they get into that, they begin their trawl with a wonderful moment from Carol Vorderman who had the Joe Lycett audience whooping with delight. 

    The students at Cambridge were much quieter when GB News and Braverman turned up to ask them why they were protesting about Palestine. Words have power but sometimes, so does silence. 


    Although the guest she confronted in the GB News about the same topic, was gloriously outspoken and for once, it seems Suella didn‚Äôt have much to answer back with. 


    Then it‚Äôs onto some of the reaction from the same news outlet regarding Ofcom‚Äôs finding that their ‚ÄòAsk Rishi‚Äô forum was impartial. 


    Lastly, Jemma and Marina discuss the fact that Jeremy Clarkson has been voted sexiest man by the female users of a certain dating site. The mind boggles.

    Ep 152: 4 Loose Women, 6 Pledges & 72 Genders

    We love it when politics goes mainstream... And it did this week when Sunak and Starmer decided to appear on Loose Women and Sunday Brunch, respectively. Jemma and Marina discuss how they both fared, and why one of them went viral - probably because he tried to suggest he was fixing child poverty with an Online Safety Bill.

    Next up are more culture wars as a result of the 72-gender myth which is resulting in new legislation, despite the only evidence of this being a thing coming from someone's next door neighbour's friend's sister's cat. 


    And you'll be glad to know that it's not just poverty that is spiraling in this country, but Sunak's and his wife's wealth too. Jemma and Marina discuss the growing inequality in the UK and elsewhere, and why soulless Sunak is the last person we need at the helm.
