The Last Word: November 2021

ITV News Meridian's Political Correspondent Phil Hornby hosts November's edition of The Last Word.

Sleaze. How have we got to this ? What has been the damage to the reputation of our MPs, and indeed Parliament as a whole. Is this as bad as the Expenses Scandal? Jenny Jones tell us it's worse.

Migration. The numbers crossing in small boats continues to grow all the time. Last Thursday, a new record - 1,185 in one day. In Folkestone, people tell us there is very little confidence in the ability of politicians to solve this problem. And agreement with the French seems elusive.

And Cop26. Reading West's Alok Sharma did his best. But last minute intervention from India and China meant it was not the agreement that some had hoped for. So what happens next?

In the studio:

  • Greg Smith, Conservative MP for Buckingham

  • Matt Rodda, Reading East's Labour MP

  • Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb in Brighton, for the Green Party
