Comedian Geoff Norcott joined Jon Holmes to discuss teaching, politics and Brexit.

Norcott, whose current tour is called 'Conswervative' and claims he is "right-leaning but well-meaning", spoke about being a teacher whilst Tony Blair was in power and how he fought against the idea of any answer a child gives being right.

He added that he left teaching partly because "there was a culture" of moaning about marking which he didn't like.

Norcott also revealed he voted Leave in last summer's referendum, but said he wouldn't call himself a Brexiteer. He's optimistic about the country and thinks it's "got a lot going for it."
