About The Daily Politics

Jo Coburn and Andrew Neil

The programme is presented by Andrew Neil and Jo Coburn every weekday lunchtime on BBC Two.

When the House of Commons is in session, Andrew, Jo and the team are here to give you the low-down, grill those responsible and discover the stories behind the stories.

Boris Johnson and Tessa Jowell on the Daily Politics

Our reporters Max, Giles, Adam and David get out and about to hear the latest goings-on in Westminster and up your street, to find out which issues are affecting you directly.

Reporting on subjects ranging from street crime to the war on terror, the Daily Politics analyses and explains why these stories count and what they mean to us all.

The Bee Gees and Norman Tebbit on the Daily Politics

It's the programme of choice for politicians, pundits and the voting public. They even watch it in Brussels!

As the programme is live and political stories can change dramatically at short notice. the daily email we send out with our plans for the show might be out of date as soon as it arrives with you, but it gives you a good idea!

And we are also on Twitter, with nearly 20,000 people following us and our ramblings (as of summer 2011).

The Daily Politics is broadcast on BBC Two from 1200 to 1230 every weekday (Wednesdays are 1130-1300, including Prime Minister's Questions).

The Daily Politics gets answers to its questions

For those who miss it, there's a midnight repeat on BBC Parliament.
