Douglas Carswell grew up in Uganda. For a dozen years—2005 to 2017—he was a member of the British parliament. He is a conservative and a free-market man. In recent weeks, he has come to America to head the Mississippi Center for Public Policy. Jay talks with him about a little bit of everything: Africa; British politics (Thatcher, Cameron, Boris, et al.); Mississippi (how do you sell Thatcher-Reagan politics in a poor state?); America (what do you like about it, or dislike?); conservatism (what is it?); and more. Douglas Carswell has led a highly interesting life, and is an excellent conversationalist.
