113: EU elections: HOWLS OF FRUSTRATION with special guest Rachel Shabi

As Labour’s NEC enrages members by pushing a Confirmatory Referendum into Never-Neverland and recommitting to “Soft” Brexit, we invite Guardian writer and Corbyn supporter RACHEL SHABI into the Remainiacs bunker for a candid discussion of Labour’s Brexit contortions. Why would voters back the party in the EU parliamentary election if that vote will only be transformed into a “vote for Brexit”? Is it time for Remainers to give up on Labour and vote for unequivocally Remain parties? And is there still time to get Labour to change?

PLUS hear Alex read out the winner of our Donald Tusk Romantic Fiction Prize in a truly unprecedented moment in recorded audio. Better have that cold shower running… 

“If we take our foot off the pedal with Labour now, they have free rein to do whatever they want. So we can’t take that pressure off.”

Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Alex Andreou and Naomi Smith. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Audio production is by Sophie Black. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
