24: Germansplaining Brexit plus Orwell Book Club

Friday, 27 October

This week on the favourite podcast of disloyal academics everywhere… Our special guest political commentator NINA SCHICK of BBC, Sky and Bloomberg TV drops in to Germansplain the Brexit mess to we naïve Anglos. Turns out the German car industry isn’t terrified of losing us at all. And those Brussels negotiations? “Hardball from the EU? You ain’t seen nothing yet.” Plus we spot the scarily prescient ideas in George Orwell’s ‘Notes On Nationalism’ from 1945 in the first Remainiacs Book Club. Also: intimidating our Remain universities. The spectre of “Czechxit”. And we find out how JFK accidentally saved the City of London… for the same reasons that we’re about to destroy it. Well done us! “How does Europe negotiate with a partner that doesn’t know what it wants?” Want to help us #OwnTheRemoan?
