episode 144: EXTENSION REBELLION: Will Boris blink?

Remainiacs on a Friday, like it's 2017 or something? As the clock ticks down to Zero Hour, will the Government’s performative anti-Brussels bolshiness come back to bite it? What are the real factors that are making the GNU the most endangered animal in politics? Project Fear comes true, but still can’t cut through. How to shut up people who shout “LISBON TREATY!” as if it’s some magic word to dispel all anti-Brexit argument...

episode 143: O, BUFFER WHERE ART THOU? Johnson’s border plans – plus WTO trade fun

It’s not a deal if only one person wants it. This week, the Government breaks its promise on no customs checks in the island of Ireland with an offer the EU can’t excuse. Is Johnson throwing Ireland under the Boris Bus (again) and why does the government’s creation of narrative take precedence over actually solving the border issue?  Plus: Priti Patel decides that Britain is not a country but a Russell Group university...

With the legality of prorogation being tested in the crucible of the Supreme Court, we welcome Good Law Project director and Remain legal vanguard JOLYON MAUGHAM QC to the studio to discuss exactly what’s at stake. If the Government wins this one, could future administrations simply suspend Parliament whenever it likes, as if in some authoritarian Hokey-Cokey?

episode 135: THE LYIN’ KING LOSES CONTROL plus guest Jonathan Lis

Was that the shortest honeymoon since Cher married Greg Allman? The Johnson- Cummings plan is in bits on the floor of Parliament and Bojo’s jolly mask has well and truly slipped. As the petulant boy king threatens a General Election he can’t deliver, the Remainiacs team gather with special guest and journo Jonathan Lis of think tank British Influence to work out what happened and what it all really means.
