This is a Global Britain, for Local People!

As the Government rushes to sign trade deals with some countries (just not our nearest neighbours), special guest Bridget Phillipson, Labour MP and Shadow Treasury Secretary, joins us to work out exactly what Global Britain really means. Have we left the real EU just to join the EU of the 1970s? Plus the “Lab Leak” theory of COVID’s origins seems to be gaining credence. What does this bulletin from the conspiratorial fringe mean for those of us who believe in science and stuff?

• “I don’t think any of us have any idea what the Government means by levelling up.” – Bridget Phillipson MP

• We’re being sucked into a hugely competitive trading bloc where our society can’t compete… and then we’ll spend the next 20 years trying to get out of it.” – Arthur Snell

• “The Government is talking about solving problems that they themselves caused over the past 10 years.” – Bridget Phillipson MP

• “There’s nothing there in Liz Truss’s Global Britain. It’s just words.” Marie Le Conte
