Helen and Stephen discuss the Brexit votes in the Commons this week and how a Lords amendment on the EU Withdrawal Bill will work. Then, they analyse Paul Dacre's departure as editor of the Daily Mail and what it will mean for the paper. Finally, they answer a listener question: why hasn't the press picked up more on claims of Islamophobia in the Conservative Party?
