’Twas The Fright Before Brexit: End Of Year Special

Out early to beat potential Deal obsolescence! All we want for Christmas is… a deal. Any deal. Has an agreement already been concluded and is it just waiting for the window-dressing? We assemble the full panel to explain where Johnson has caved, how Labour might have a get-out-of-jail clause, and why there’s not much wriggle room on fish. Oh, and the Government’s incomprehensible Christmas advice. Plus, we present the Oh God, What Now? Awards for 2020. Who are the winners, losers, disasters and great moments of this wonderful year which we enjoyed so much? And the panel’s closing thoughts this Very Mini Christmas. 


  • “We’re hearing that Johnson’s accepting the European Court of Justice as final arbitrator. That would be massive .” – Alex Andreou
  • “Everything we’ve heard about what Rishi Sunak does behind the scenes confirms that he’s deeply, deeply wrong.” – Ian Dunt
  • “Somehow the scientific advice became secondary to what anti-lockdown Tories will put up with. And that’s really dangerous.” – Alex Andreou
  • “In any other cabinet Matt Hancock would be by far the worst member. In this one, somehow he’s pretty much the best.” – Ian Dunt


Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Ros Taylor, Ian Dunt, Alex Andreou and Naomi Smith. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers: Jacob Archbold and Jelena Sofronijevic. Audio production by Alex Rees. OH GOD, WHAT NOW? is a Podmasters production.
