93: PARLIAMENT TAKES BACK CONTROL? With special guest Peter Kellner
It’s time-sensitive again so we’re releasing this one, recorded at 2pm on Wednesday, a little early. In our first podcast of 2019 we’re right back into the Brexit war of attrition with the aid of special guest PETER KELLNER, doyen of pollsters, ex-president of YouGov and expert on exactly the sort of constitutional mess we find ourselves in this week.
As luck would have it we recorded at the exact moment the Grieve Amendment – the one that mandates the Government to come up with a Plan B if and when the May Deal is defeated – went to the vote. Listen as the panel try to formulate a coherent response to the result on the fly…
PLUS: Was Channel 4’s ‘Brexit: The Uncivil War’ a worthy chronicle of Leave’s data heist during the Referendum and does Benedict Cumberbatch convince as Dominic ‘Obi-Wan Brexit’ Cummings? Will the Government get away with launching its Pay To Stay “settlement scheme” for UK-resident EU citizens over Christmas, when it thought nobody was watching? And could we run a ferry company or a lorry park better than the Government?
This week’s podcast is produced and presented by Andrew Harrison with Alex Andreou, Ros Taylor and Ian Dunt (who had to rush off before the photo). Audio production is by Alex Rees. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
