NS#239: It’s Brexit Again, Kids

The New Statesman podcast with Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush.

By New Statesman

Why is the government delaying the EU Withdrawal Bill? Helen and Stephen discuss where it all went wrong. Then they look at the trend for setting up new “centrist” parties and wonder if the Lib Dems are screwed for good. Finally, they answer a listener question: how do you tell if a politician is a rising star, or just a load of hot air?
