We try to make sense of the idiotic events of the last few days, which saw the Government’s Brexit strategy collapse into chaos. Plus the Electoral Commission investigates Corbyn-lovin’ Momentum, and a warning to Donald Trump about Santa.
Paul Osbourne and Robert Meakin take a look at the Budget, including the promise of help for first time buyers, and the awful state of the economy. The deficit may never be paid off, but one guest tells us that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Plus what Europe really thinks of our Brexit negotiators, and how Labour’s former leader in Scotland is going to squeeze a little bit of politics into I’m a Celebrity.
Another week, another resignation from Theresa May’s chaotic government. We explore how Priti Patel made so many catastrophic decisions, and ask how much longer this can go on. Plus, how should harassment claims be investigated after Carl Sargeant’s death, and Rupert Murdoch’s obvious bluff as he tries to take over the whole of Sky TV.
The revelations of the past week at Westminster have lifted a rock, to expose behaviour that’s been ignored, or tolerated, for decades. Michael Fallon’s already resigned — will others follow? And will anything significant change? Meanwhile, the Government faces yet another Brexit setback.
No deal is a bad deal. Or a good deal. Or something. With the Cabinet split on Brexit, how are we to know? We pick through another "really successful" week in negotiations, as well as looking at the row over Universal Credit, the MPs boundary changes that won't happen, plus we pause for a little mindfulness.
