94: THE DAY THE DEAL DIED with special guest David Allen Green

RUSH RELEASE FOR RELEVANCE: The day after the May Deal finally fell to a record defeat (with an even worse vote than her projected result if she hadn’t bottled it in December) Ian Dunt, Naomi Smith and Dorian Lynskey convene to ask what the hell is going on and how will it all end.

As the Deal lies in tatters, special guest DAVID ALLEN GREEN – lawyer, writer, commentator and warrior monk of the British constitution – joins us to ask tough questions of the People’s Vote and explain just how far back the Brexiters’ strategic awfulness goes. Hands up, who had “the 1680s” in the sweepstake?

PLUS: Which of our panel would have voted for the May Deal if they were an MP? Will Plan B just be Plan A in a fake moustache and glasses? Will anything ever penetrate Jeremy Corbyn’s Reality Protection Field? And it’s Ian’s sweariest episode yet. We’re sorry. He’s very, very tired. 

“Yesterday felt like being at the execution of Charles I.”

This week’s podcast is presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith and Ian Dunt. Audio production is by Sophie Black. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.

  • Sonic note: Please excuse the weird radiophonic hum that intrudes a couple of times in this episode. We’re not sure where it came from but we thought it more important to get the show out than spend ages trying to remove it. It’s probably just the sound of Leave.EU trying to jam our recording.
