Would a "no deal" Brexit really be so bad? Helen and Stephen analyse the likelihood of the UK crashing out of the EU without a plan, and then take a look at the domestic policy problems brewing with Universal Credit. Then, they answer a listener question: would any of the 2016 Tory leadership candidates have done better than Theresa May? Also, listen out for the introduction of our new Boris Johnson swear jar - let us know what charity we should donate the contents to at the end of the year.
