Weekly Brexit news round-up with Steph Farnsworth

Apr 25, 2017, 03:00 AM

Journalist Steph Farnsworth joins Tim to discuss the past seven days of Brexit developments. With the June 8 general election fast-approaching, Steph picks up on a couple of Theresa May's key aides resigning, how the PM left students vexed with his non-committal attitude over university tuition fees, and also questions Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's dithering over whether to commit to a second EU referendum should Labour miraculously seize a share of power. We also look at how Donald Trump's hardball tactics over Obamacare and the wall on the Mexican border is threatening to shutdown the US government - and what this kind of attitude might mean for future UK/US trade relations. Plus, Steph reports on disturbing news from Chechnya where LGBT communities are facing persecution under Vladimir Putin's hard-line governance. Steph is editor of new youth magazine Stand Up, that has been launched to inspire more young people to engage in politics.
