Theresa May's never-ending nightmare culminates in a parade of miseries at her party conference. Is the Prime Minister really about to be pushed out because she got a cold? We ask whether Boris Johnson is copying the Duke of Edinburgh or Donald Trump as burns every bridge he sees. Meanwhile, was everything really as rosy in Brighton as Labour's supporters think it was? And who on earth is the new leader of UKIP?
What is Boris Johnson up to? Does he want to be sacked? Does he still think he's in with a chance of the top job? Or does he just want to highlight how weak Theresa May is? We ask why he's undermined the Prime Minister, just as she's about to set out her strategy for Brexit. Meanwhile, Sir Vince Cable genuinely thinks he could be the next PM, as UKIP consider a leadership candidate who's too extreme for most of UKIP.
Brexit is back in the Commons, and it turns out "take back control" didn't really apply to MPs. Plus, who leaked that top secret immigration plan? How on earth did Theresa May convince herself she could stay in office for five more years? And how did her scripted soundbite end up sounding a bit like "let them eat cake"? Meanwhile, Labour won't stare directly at The Sun, and we learn Stormzy's word of the week...
How should Theresa May treat Donald Trump, now he's confirmed his racism and bigotry? We look at a depressing, horrifying couple of weeks in the US. Back home, we're on a slow train north -- because all trains in the north are slow, and that won't be changing anytime soon. Plus the curious personality cult around Jacob Rees-Mogg, and the ridiculous displays of mourning as Big Ben is silenced.
In a summer special, we catch up with Simon Marks, 20-year-plus veteran of Washington DC reporting, who spends his time covering the Trump White House. We discuss the sleepless terror of watching the President, and how this whole fiasco could come to an end. Plus we try to answer the question - what on earth does Trump actually do all day?
