49: People’s Vote, Windrush shame and Scotland vs Brexit with Kirsty Blackman MP of the SNP

Remainiacs welcomes SNP Westminster deputy leader and economics spokesperson KIRSTY BLACKMAN MP for a long-overdue Scottish perspective on Brexit. What does our departure from the EU mean for Scottish independence? Which would she prefer: no Brexit and Scotland stays in the EU, or independence but Scotland outside the EU? Will the SNP leave the “rUK” in the Brexity lurch? Listen in as our cast cite great-aunties from Arbroath in a bid to nail a Scottish passport after we leave the EU.

Plus! The national shame of the Windrush scandal, and why Theresa May’s “hostile environment” for immigrants is the poison inside Brexit. Can the House of Lords frustrate Brexit, and if they can, should they? More contents for our Brexit Time Capsule. And a special appearance by long-time listener, first-time caller Nigel Farage

“You can’t appease the ignorant minority of xenophobes in this country. You have to oppose them.”

This week’s REMAINIACS is presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith and Peter Collins. Audio production: Jack Claramunt. Producer: Andrew Harrison. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
