Helen is away, so Stephen is joined by Anoosh Chakelian to discuss the latest rows over single market access and Cameron’s defense of his austerity agenda. Amelia Tait then helps explore the gendered world of punctuation. And You Ask Us: should the Conservatives have a Momentum of their own?
Quotes of the episode:
Stephen on Labour’s broad spectrum of single marketeers: “They’re sort of like a soil sample of the parliamentary Labour party.”
Anoosh on interviewing Vince Cable: “He was saying that the langauge [Theresa May] has used about immigration is evil.”
Amelia on the use of exclamation marks: “women feel more obliged to be friendly.”
