Just after Labour Party delegates chose him as deputy leader parliamentary affairs, automatically assuming the role of deputy prime minister, Chris Fearne speaks about his philosophy to remain close to the people.

He shuns the argument that this means fostering a culture of nepotism and corruption, insisting instead people should be listened to and given an answer, whether it is positive or negative.

On Times Talk, Mr Fearne also speaks of his relationship with Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi, the Prime Minister's Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and the government's drive to consider the legalisation of marijuana.

The full interview will be uploaded tomorrow.
