In an exclusive post-show interview, the pair reflect on national service and Nigel Farage

Camilla Tominey and former Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng have reflected together on a 'mad cat' show.

Kwarteng revealed that he shares a birthday with GB News presenter Michael Portillo and former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

In an exclusive post show interview for GB News members, the pair discussed controversial new plans by the Conservatives to re-introduce national service.

Camilla also offered Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey an invitation to come on the show.

When asked about national service, Kwarteng said: "I think it's a good idea, but it needs to be thought through. And I think it was, in the campaign, I think they want to give out some strong messages.

"[James Cleverly] is one of the ablest media performers. And I thought he was today, frankly not at his best. No. But it's a difficult situation."

Camilla then said she "couldn't quite" see the logic behind Nigel Farage's decision to not stand for Reform at the general election.

Kwarteng responded, saying: "I don't get it either. I mean, he's someone who's saying 'it's going to hell in a handcart, the conservatives are busted. They're terrible. We've got to get rid of them. But actually, I'm not going to bother.'"

Kwarteng also responded to Labour's plan for a VAT raid on private schools, saying that the proposals 'don't make any sense.'

He said: "I think it just doesn't make any sense, because what's going to happen is you've implied was that lots of the people who are in private education are going to be moved to state education.

"So any money that you get from the VAT increase or the VAT levy, if you like, will be spent on trying to accommodate new, new people."

Camilla added that Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey is welcome to come on the show.

She said: " We couldn't get a Liberal Democrat because they didn't want to put anyone up this weekend. I don't know if it was a GB News thing or just a general broadcast round things.

"We give them the benefit of the doubt. Ed Davey, if you're watching, you're more than welcome to come on here."
