THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM: We look at Brexit bribery, Ladies For Leave and the elephants in the room

Mar 08, 06:00 AM

This week, the last desperate moves before next week’s descent in the Hellmouth of Final Votes. Has Theresa May’s attempts to bribe Labour MPs from Leave constituencies backfired? Just how wobbly is Labour’s “commitment” to a People’s Vote? And who will run candidates in the 2019 European Parliamentary Elections if Brexit is extended and Britain has to participate? 

Plus! While parliament wrestles with procedure, our panelists choose the real elephants in the room that nobody is talking about. Which Leave leaders would we turn and use their powers for good if we could? The loopiness of Ladies for Leave. And how did Bristol’s Massive Attack predict Brexit?   

This week’s REMAINIACS is presented by Naomi Smith with Ingrid Oliver, Ros Taylor and Melissa Chemam. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Audio production is by Alex Rees. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
