OH GOD, WHAT NOW? Formerly Remainiacs
81: ARRON BANKS BUST: “It’s like Bodyguard – but a lot less sexy.” Plus: Brexit Parliamentary procedure special!
Did Andrew Marr fail to land a punch on Arron Banks? Should Leave EU’s troubled Alpha Gammon have been invited on a BBC politics programme at all? What does it mean for Labour now that Momentum members have come out for a People’s Vote? Will Labour’s Barry Gardiner ever recover from the “reveal” of that massive C4 poll that showed a firm shift to Remain across the country – and what does Ian really think of “Eyeroll Girl”?
PLUS Ruth Fox of the Hansard Society drops in to explain just how messy the Government’s use of “Henry VIII” Statutory instruments has become (spoiler: they have almost no time left to do what they need to do). And she unpicks the Parliamentary practicalities of a People’s Vote.
“There’s a reason why ministers always go on Marr. It’s because they get an easy ride.”
