Dido’s Life For Rent
“Happy” Referendum-versary! Special guest Ailbhe Rae of the New Statesman joins us to look at the meaning of the Lib Dem victory in Chesham and Amersham – don’t mention the Blue Wall – and explain what the DUP’s current game of Musical Stegosauruses means for Northern Ireland. Plus as Dido Harding offers to head the NHS and rid it of those pesky foreign nurses, we take a look at the Toryverse’s most inveterate failer-upper. And what would we do if WE were forced to take the plum job of Government Brexit Opportunity Unit Director?

- “Labour is definitely in crisis right now, don’t get me wrong – but Chesham and Amersham is only a footnote in the crisis.” – Ailbhe Rae
