In the latest episode of our podcast Acting Prime Minister, ITV News gives adventurer and TV presenter Ben Fogle the hypothetical keys to Number 10 and asks him: What would you do?
In this chat with ITV News Political Correspondent Paul Brand, Ben revealed a mix of political views: once an admirer of Jeremy Corbyn, he is in favour of charging for the NHS for those who abuse drink or drugs. He says he's a liberal, but is critical of the 'snowflake' culture and would bring back national service. Remembering his time at school, he explains why he would scrap most exams and why our definition of success needs to change.
