Jay has a leisurely, wide-ranging, enriching hour with Daniel Hannan, the writer, columnist, and member of the House of Lords. What’s that all about, by the way? Is the House of Lords a senate? Do they wear wigs? And how about “House of Cards”? Is Westminster anything like that? Hannan and Jay further talk about Peru, where Hannan was born and grew up. A new president has been elected—a real bolshie. How does democracy fare across the world, in this age of pandemic and strongmen? At the end of their conversation, the two talk about Shakespeare, about which Daniel Hannan is authoritative and, as ever, eloquent. You will enjoy this hour—the cast of characters is large (FDR, Churchill, JFK, Macmillan, Reagan, Thatcher, Falstaff, Cleopatra, Bill Clinton, Blair, Boris) and the subjects burning or engrossing, or both. 

Daniel Hannan joins Dave Sussman to discuss England leaving the EU in less than a year, Leftism in Europe, the media (BBC and CNN), trade/tariffs, his opinion of Donald Trump, Jeremy Corbyn, and much more.

Daniel has been Conservative Member of the European Parliament for almost 20 years. He was the first Secretary-General of the Alliance of Conservatives and Reformists in Europe (ACRE), serving from 2009 to 2018. Outside of Europe, he is probably most known for being one of the founders of Vote Leave, the organization that campaigned for Great Britain to leave the EU in 2016, which won, stunning not only England and Europe but the world. Many think the referendum, known as BREXIT was a predictor of the voters’ mood not just in England, but also in America which lead to the election of Donald Trump.

British MEP Daniel Hannan sits down with Ben Weingarten, Senior Fellow of the London Center for Policy Research and Founder & CEO of ChangeUp Media, to discuss MEP Hannan’s essay in the new book “Vox Populi: The Perils and Promises of Populism.” MEP Hannan and Weingarten discuss a series of topics including the anti-progressive character of modern populism, the failure of the elite political establishment, Brexit and the future of the EU, the death of classical liberalism in Europe, the underappreciated impact on the financial crisis on the Western body politic, the imperative to defend free market capitalism and much more.

This week, Daniel Hannan, the one and only, dropped by National Review headquarters in New York. Taking advantage, Jay sat down with him for a “Q&A.” Hannan, as you know, is the British writer-politician extraordinaire.

With Jay, he discusses the nature of America. And then the question of national self-determination: What right do the Catalonians and Kurds have? Everyone can’t have his own country, can he?

Daniel Hannan, the British writer and politician, was honored at the recent “ideas summit” of the National Review Institute. Jay sat down with him there, to talk about Britain, Europe, nationalism, patriotism, Marine Le Pen, Viktor Orbán, Vladimir Putin, and more. Burning issues addressed by a learned, experienced, and thoughtful man.

That would be a good name for a show, and it’s a good idea for a show: “Ask Dan” – Dan being Daniel Hannan, the distinguished British writer, and member of the European Parliament. You can ask him virtually anything, and he will give you a good, well-informed answer, beautifully expressed.

This is essentially what Jay does in this “Q&A”: He asks Hannan about Britain and America and some other things. British questions include Brexit, the color of passports, and the Bolshevikation of the Labour party. American questions include – well, guess who? Trump ’n’ Hillary.
