As Boris Johnson kicks Gavin Williamson out from the cabinet, the issues of trade with the EU, especially in Northern Ireland, have been kicked into the long grass once again. Independent MLA Claire Sugden joins the panel for the view from across the Irish Sea.

"How can it be five years, and we're still talking about Percy Pigs at the border?" - Ian Dunt

"Our government has got its eyes on lowering food standards." - Naomi Smith

"I'm less concerned about when the Northern Ireland administration collapses, and more what happens afterwards." - Claire Sugden
