108: The Rollercoaster of Hell

At a time when every week feels like a momentous one, this week really was. We’ll be talking about this week’s events years from now, so let's try to make sense of it all.

Theresa May suffers the worst defeat any government’s endured in more than a century, and of course does not resign, or even seem to think there’s anything particularly wrong.

Instead she invites rivals to talks, while insisting she won’t budge on her red lines, which isn’t strictly speaking a negotiation.

Meanwhile Jeremy Corbyn refuses to even talk. Just another calm, peaceful week in Brexit Britain.

We look at whether our rival tribes will ever be able to put the national interest first (spoiler: almost certainly not), and try to figure out what might happen next.


63: Mayhem

As Theresa May clings to power, having driven her party off the edge of an avoidable cliff, we ask how long she'll last, what the DUP will demand for propping her up, and exactly when we'll need to sharpen those ballot pencils again. Plus we reflect on Jeremy Corbyn's amazing night, a bad result for Nicola Sturgeon, and an awful one for UKIP.
