Alec Feldman’s Party Dot Com: Free Stuff

The party for the young by the young responds to Jeremy Corbyn’s challenge.

Alec Feldman’s Party Dot Com: Free Stuff

DoubleU DoubleU DoubleU Dot Party Dot Com. That is the (really catchy) name of the latest of the new political parties to be formed in recent months. But this one is different – this party is exclusively for the young, and against the over 30s.

And already we’re having an impact. This week, UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn announced a policy of free bus passes for everyone – EVERYONE – under 25. This is a clear response to the threat posed by our party.

But Alec Feldman wasn’t having any of it. First off, he announced a policy of giving everyone under 25 a free bus – not just a bus pass, an actual bus. And then he took suggestions from party members for other things that should be made free.

The outcome – well, hear it for yourself. But don’t be surprised if you see…

Alec Feldman: What can £5.55 buy you?

Until recently, Alec Feldman had lived in London his whole life. But during his return home from his adopted city of Leeds (in the north), he’s looked at home in a new light.

Mainly, how expensive everything is.

When meeting a friend in a North London pub, Alec was shocked to discover that a sandwich – yes, definitely a sandwich and not anything else you might buy in a pub – set him back £5.55. So to make a point about how obscenely expensive that was, he set out to discover what else that £5.55 could’ve got him.

Hyer's Highlights: Zuckerberg In Congress

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has faced a Congressional hearing with Senators, who questioned him on his company’s data policies following the Cambridge Analytica revelations.

He admitted mistakes and regrets, and also apologised for not taking responsibility to avoid foreign interference in elections.


On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, a debate ensued over whether Facebook should be regulated. As much as listeners were furious at Facebook, listeners such as Michaela felt strongly that it was down to all of us to read the user agreements, and in truth, the fact that so few people do shows that we “don’t care that much” about our data.

Benji agrees that it’s time to start taking responsibility for the amount of data we give Facebook and other companies.
