We’ve had the Brexit Opportunities Minister and the Brexit Benefits Department but weirdly - we still can’t point to what those are.
Today we ask if the UK economy is measurably worse off after Brexit (spoiler : the answer is yes) and what the solutions are. We hear the position of business, and talk to Tony Danker, the Director General of the Confederate of Business Industry. We look at the metrics with the Financial Times' Peter Foster that tell us what Brexit has done to growth. And we ask if the Mini Budget Kwarteng epiphany was a result of a country now desperate to plug holes Brexit has left.
Later in the show, we hear from the other side of the Brexit deal: the EU. The outgoing EU Ambassador to the UK João Vale de Almeida is in News Agents HQ.
