NS#234: Brexit’s Nigel Farage Problem

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

Helen and Stephen discuss Theresa May’s dislike of parliamentary scrutiny and Labour’s use of opposition day debates. Then we hear what Stephen learned about Brexit on his recent trip to Poland. Finally, they answer a rather topical question: should former politicans like Tony Blair and Hillary Clinton just go away?
