83: THE DEAL is here. Now what? Plus guest CHRIS ADDISON on the Brexit tragi-comedy
Early release special – recorded at 2-3pm on Wednesday and it was up to date when we pressed ‘send’! THE DEAL is finally here, but what does it mean? What’s in it, who’s going to hate it and can May get it past Parliament, the DUP, the ERG and an increasingly restive populace? Comedian, actor and fellow Brexit sufferer CHRIS ADDISON joins us at the hinge of history to ask where we go from here, the true meaning of vassalage, how we can change the agenda… and how Ollie from ‘The Thick Of It’ would have fitted into our new political reality.
PLUS: We go to Tuesday’s #PeoplesVote rally and grab Justine Greening for a quote! What the so-called Taxpayer’s Alliance’s capitulation to whistleblower Shahmir Sanni’s wrongful dismissal suit really means. What would Oliver Postgate’s animated series ‘55 Tufton Street’ be like? And is it a good idea for Remainers to buy up all the toilet paper in Britain?
“There are really good technocrats working on this who have to report to a person above them who is, frankly, a numpty.”
