97: CAVALIERS vs. ROUNDHEADS with guest MARK GATISS of League Of Gentlemen

This is a LOCAL podcast for LOCAL people… We are thrilled to have the great MARK GATISS – writer, star of ‘The League Of Gentlemen‘, 'Sherlock' and 'Doctor Who', and five-star unyielding Remainer – as this week’s special guest on Remainiacs. 

Listen in as Mark explains how the League unwittingly predicted the Brexit mindset, why despite the Nissan news Leave has such a grip on the North-East where he was born, “the weaponisation of nostalgia”… and which residents of Royston Vasey would have voted Remain. 

Plus! Why “alternative arrangements” means yet more blind man’s Brexit. Why Labour really fears the Backstop. More on the shameless liar Daniel Kawcynzski MP. Which Labour MP is a Pound Shop Soprano. And why you should be more relaxed about our supposed EU exit date in March but much more worried about July. 

“This really is the closest we’ve got to a civil war. We already have our Cavaliers and Roundheads. All we need is for Theresa May to go to Nottingham and raise the standard.”

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