The Bigger Picture: Sunak & the Rwanda Bill vote and legal migration
Political commentator Mike Indian discusses Rishi Sunak and the Rwanda Bill, which led to Robert Jenrick's resignation. With the Tory party once more engaged in ferocious in-fighting, are the Prime Minister's days numbered? Discussing the clampdown on legal migration, with a net 750,000 migrants last year, Mike wondered if our politicians, on all sides, are in tune with the public, especially in the Red Wall areas. Discussing why we are so bad at forward planning in the UK, Mike felt that Keir Starmer, if he is to become PM, needs a plan to show how people's lives will be improved.

So please register to join us on Tuesday 5th March at Church House, Westminster, for a major half-day event sponsored by NatWest and The Tracing Group calling for priority action to reach over one million young adults whose accounts, worth over £2 billion in total, are lying dormant because their young adult owners don't know anything about them.

The Bigger Picture: Regulation and standards, Conservative desperation & Labour and the NHS
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at some of the problems of regulation and setting standards in the light of the suicide of headmistress Ruth Perry in the wake of an Ofsted inspection. He feels that Keir Starmer has vectored rhetorically and atmospherically to the right of the Conservatives and that Jacob Rees-Mogg's teasing smacks of desperation and the end of a long chess game. And he feels that Wes Streeting should consider Singapore's health system, which could be the answer for the future of the NHS, although it would involve a heck of a battle with vested interests.

The Business of FIlm: May December, She Came To Me & Past Lives
James Cameron-Wilson takes Simon Rose through the box office chart, with takings down 25% WoW but up 43% YoY. With nothing new in the chart, still led by Napoleon, he sought out Todd Haynes's Oscar contender May December, starring Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore. About celebrity, James was enthralled, without ever feeling it quite ignited. He was more enthusiastic about Rebecca Miller's She Came To Me on Sky Cinema. With Peter Dinklage, Anne Hathaway and Marisa Tomei, it's about an opera composer with writer's block and is a refreshing, insightful and very funny farce. Best of all, though was Korean-American film Past Lives from Celine Song, about two childhood friends reconnecting after twenty years.
