Pauline Pearce on the Daily Politics Show

Pauline Pearce was the studio guest in Monday’s Daily Politics. She deals with questions on Iain Duncan Smith’s latest reforms of the welfare system, and on Nigel Farage and the EU.

Half way through the show there is a profile of Pauline, which explains why she became known as the Hackney Heroine. It is followed by a discussion between her and David Lammy about the Hackney riots – I leave you to decide who won!

You can watch the whole of the programme here. Towards the end of the programme, Julia Goldsworthy, Parliamentary candidate for Cambourne and Redruth,  also appears  discussing the Maria Miller expenses issue, Parliamentary reform and describes her motivation for standing again.

  • I bet IDS loved her remark that she knows there are plenty of people getting very rich on benefits (I paraphrase)

    Wealthy on benefits ? What world is she living in ?

    Ithink that she is living in a world that we should draw more of our politicians from if we want a truly representative democracy MartinB.

    She is not a skilled media performer and I dread to think how most of us would have done if we were put on the spot answering questions for which we had not prepared answers.

    @Ian - the Revoke policy didn't go through this committee. It was a combination of the parliamentary party and Conference that decided it.
