60: SELLING BRITAIN BY THE POUND: Shorting sterling, blowing out business
This week on the anti-Brexit podcast for people who actually KNOW how to rebel… the Greens’ Brexit and Finance spokesperson MOLLY SCOTT CATO MEP joins us to dig into the scandal of the Leavers short-selling sterling. Did hedge funds illegally use private polling to profit from weakening the pound on Referendum Day? And where does Nigel Farage fit in?
PLUS: Because you demanded it, we welcome political commentator, actor and our favourite Greek guy ALEX ANDREOU as a regular Remainiacs team member. He joins Ros Taylor and Andrew Harrison to discuss the Tories’ new anti-business business policy, what “settled status” for EU citizens really means… and is the EU really going to outlaw memes? _DRAMATIC CHIPMUNK FACE! _
Then Ros has to dart out early before the end of the show. That’s why she’s not in the pic with Molly, Alex and Andrew. But don’t worry, she’ll be back soon.
This week’s REMAINIACS is presented by Andrew Harrison with Ros Taylor and Alex Andreou. Audio production: Jack Claramunt. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
