"Portillo At IoD Nosh-Up"
Former British Government Shadow Chancellor Michael Portillo was in Jersey at the weekend to speak at an Institute of Directors dinner.
You can watch our interview with Mr Portillo above. He spoke to our political correspondent Gillian Martindale about the economy (not rosy); the relationship between the UK and the Channel Islands in the wake of Zero 10 (we are doing the right thing) and his post-political career as a writer, broadcaster and political pundit.
And Mr Portillo has some re-assuring words for the Channel Islands about their relationship with the European Union (If you think you are having a hard time, the British Government certainly is!).
