Tim Farron

94: Hanging by a thread

At the end of a dreadful week for Theresa May, the Prime Minister tries — and fails — to start her summer holiday early, just to stop her own MPs plotting against her.

Meanwhile, she stumbles through a series of knife-edge votes on Brexit, triggers all-out war in her party, and endures the humiliation of a Donald Trump visit.

We assess the implications of another dramatic week at Westminster, as well as asking why the leader of the anti-Brexit Lib Dems couldn’t make it to key Brexit votes, and why the Labour Party just can’t get away from rows over anti-Semitism.

Elsewhere, we look through some of the delightfully sarcastic placards in use at the anti-Trump demos in London and Edinburgh.

64: The Politics of Tragedy

As another awful week comes to an end, we look at why politics really does matter at a time of tragedy, and how the Prime Minister stumbled so badly in response to the disaster at Grenfell Tower. Plus the latest on the search for that strong and stable government, the delayed Queen's Speech, and Tim Farron's sudden departure. 

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. 

60: The Final Countdown

Just a few days to go now, and the election's been turned on its head. Now it's Jeremy Corbyn who looks confident, and Theresa May who's nervous and rattled. We talk through the debates, the polls, and the prospects for another surprise result next week.

59: Don't Look Back in Anger

After the horror of the Manchester bombing, the General Election campaign resumes after a 3-day pause. We talk about the political response to events in Manchester, and the likely next months on the campaign trail. Plus the UKIP candidate who's reaching for the stars.
