What's the cost of political chaos?

By Global

After weeks of political chaos, the real cost of the crisis is beginning to reveal itself. Lewis is joined this week by New Statesman columnist Martha Gill. They speak to Tim Durrant, Associate Director at the Institute for Government, about the staggering bill to the taxpayer, caused by an unprecedented number of ministerial redundancies over the summer.

They look to Northern Ireland, and a grid-locked Stormont. Belfast-based journalist Amanda Ferguson talks to them about the quickening decline in relations there, and the possibility of fresh elections in December.

And finally, Lewis is joined in the studio by Jon Livesey and Edward Keeble from the Daily Star, to hear about the runaway success of 'Liz the Lettuce’.
