In this week’s episode, host Steve Anglesey discusses the latest Brexit fallout that's led to the government being hated on both sides of the Channel and sets listeners a challenge of crafting headlines of Brexit disasters, as if they had been reported in pro-Brexit publications (responses of which certainly did not disappoint him). Media commentator and journalist Liz Gerard joins the podcast to lend insights into why national newspapers who backed the Leave campaign continue to pretend as if there is nothing wrong and shares her thoughts on the ongoing Owen Paterson scandal. Plus, the government, Ann Widdecombe and Jacob Rees-Mogg all feature in the Hall of Shame this week. Enjoyed this episode and the podcast's new shorter, snappier format?
