episode 138: JUSTICE LEAGUE HITS SUPREME COURT with guest Jolyon Maugham

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? Plus, the maddening detail of what would be required to implement Johnson’s imaginary deal...

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.

episode 134: PROROGUE STATE Emergencycast with David Allen Green

Things are moving far too fast to wait ’til next Friday. Ros Taylor, Alex Andreou and guest David Allen Green gather in the studio to look at the legality of prorogation, the chances of beating it in the courts or elsewhere… and the poor performance of Her Majesty The Queen. Or was it?

episode 133: MAD COUP DISEASE plus guest Hugo Rifkind

The moment of truth is finally here. Johnson-Cummings have decided it’s necessary to destroy parliamentary sovereignty in order to “save” it. But the Remain Alliance finally has its act together — and the numbers to stop No Deal. Alex Andreou is optimistic. Remain Wonder Woman Naomi Smith is ready for battle to be joined. Host Andrew Harrison is panicking. And special guest HUGO RIFKIND of The Times wonders why he picked this week to do Remainiacs… Listen up...

Let’s parlez Brexit! The Prime Minister went to Paris and Berlin and all he got us was this lousy imaginary Backstop fix. What was the purpose of Johnson’s Euro drive-by and what’s going to happen when it turns out that you can’t fix in 30 days what hasn’t been fixed in three years? Plus rock’n’roll Remainiac and national treasure GUY GARVEY of Elbow joins us to talk about the band’s new album ‘Giants Of All Sizers’, written and recorded in the shadow of Brexit...

episode 130: The Brexiters’ War on Objective Reality

While the Vote Leave government strains every sinew to make No Deal seem inevitable, our panel are bursting with reasons to be optimistic. Remain MPs are on the move, the Parliamentary timetable is up for grabs and – as Alex Andreou says – the Leavers’ blustering absolutism shows their weakness, not their strength.

As our new Vote Leave government decides that No Deal is what we all voted for after all, East Midlands Labour MEP Rory Palmer joins us for the final stage of Britain’s game of chicken with the EU.
