Had Enough of Exports

Piles of fish, cheese, bees, toys, guitar cases and banking deals are LITERALLY rotting at Britain’s ports. How long can the government keep claiming we’ve only got import/export “teething problems” when it’s full-blown trade/dental collapse? Politicshome’s Brexit and Westminster Correspondent Adam Payne joins us on the dock of the bay.


Plus: Have virus truthers finally hit Britain’s bullsh*t ceiling? Flag-angst and Starmerphobia in Labour. And is that COVID burnout you’re feeling or something deeper? Like Frasier Crane, our panel of Ian Dunt, Naomi Smith and Dorian Lynskey are listening. 


  • “When we’re being relentlessly tw*tted by events it’s a bit much to expect Starmer to produce the magnificent work of art about how to live.” – Ian Dunt
  • “If these customers in the EU start to look elsewhere for their fish, they probably won’t come back.” – Adam Payne
  • “If Britain wanted to be self-sufficient in food, we’d literally have to polytunnel the entire North East.” – Naomi Smith
