115: THE EVE OF THE WAR with special guest Stephen Bush of the New Statesman

As the EU Election clock ticks remorselessly down to zero we’re joined by the New Statesman’s political editor STEPHEN BUSH to survey the campaign so far and predict the upshot. What will Labour’s “all things to everyone” stance to do its vote? How do we fight the Brexit Party’s “all rage, no content’’ politics? Just how screwed are the Conservatives? Why a Farage victory might be a good thing for Remain. And we (try to) answer the only question that matters: who should Remainers vote for? 

PLUS Why the media’s middle class cringe gets Leave politicians off the hook. A first-ever Brexit football analogy for Remainiacs (plus some shocking anti-Spurs bias) from grieving Arsenal fanatic Stephen Bush. How CHUK failed to a make even a first impression. And why are we ignoring Clarabell who runs a recycling centre in Brighton?

“First you create the humiliation. Then you just seed that humiliation and benefit from it. That’s what Farage has always done.”

Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Nina Schick and Ian Dunt. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Audio production is by Sophie Black. Recorded by Tom Bullen at Air Edel Studios, London. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
