The Sun launches Never Mind The Ballots
Harry Cole: “It is time for Britain to decide — and it is time for politics in plain English.”

The Sun says Never Mind the Ballots will feature some of the biggest political interviews - starting with Leader of the Opposition, Sir Keir Starmer.

It will feature questions from Sun readers, and the opinions and insight of the Sun's very own Cabinet - a panel made-up of voters with real-life experience of working in law and order, defence, schools, the NHS and running their own business, from a plumbing firm to driving a black cab.

The publisher says the show will look at what readers really want from the next Government and who, if anyone, can win their vote.

The programme will also feature The Sun’s lobby team for their analysis and insight. This includes the Sun on Sunday’s Political Editor Kate Ferguson, who will be reading the temperature in Westminster with a weekly look at the Political Weather.

The Sun says on Thursday evening Harry will launch the show with a no-holds barred sit down grilling of the Labour leader - featuring questions from its readers.

Harry says: “It is time for Britain to decide — and it is time for politics in plain English. There’s no topic off limits on Never Mind the Ballots and our readers will hold our leaders to account. Don’t miss your weekly round up of what’s hot and what’s not in Westminster.”

Victoria Newton, editor-in-chief of The Sun says: “We will be putting the readers at the heart of our election coverage, in the newspaper, online and via this exciting new video show. If the politicians want the votes of our readers, they're going to have to work hard to get them."

Produced by News Studios, Never Mind The Ballots will air on and The Sun’s YouTube channel reaching nearly 5 million subscribers - every Thursday from 21st March.
