RISKY BUSINESS with guest David Henig

On The House is back in Westminster this week after a trip up the Westway to Kensington. Dr Philip Lee is away, so Sam takes the wheel. 


After Jeremy Corbyn and Boris Johnson’s ITV debate, are we any closer to knowing who’ll step into Number 10 on Friday, December 13th?


Sam is joined by trade policy expert David Henig, who provides a dose of realism to the Brexit debate in his capacity as the director of the UK Trade Policy Project at the European Centre for International Political Economy.


“They’re asking how we can get this trade deal done quickly,” says David. “Perhaps we should be asking how to get it done right…” 


Sam and David also discuss the freshly launched Lib Dem manifesto, and who they’d want in the fantasy trade negotiators team. Mourinho does not get a look in. 


Thanks to the Hamptons Bar in near St James’ Park for hosting us this week.
