Episode 21: Theresa May ‘can win the next general election - as long as she delivers a clean Brexit’
In the second episode of the new season, Chopper's Brexit Podcast hears from Nick Tyrone, author of "Apocalypse Delayed" on how a clean Brexit will help the Tories win the next general election. Also the Liberal Democrats' Brexit spokesman Tom Brake and Tory Brexiteer Michael Tomlinson debate the usefulness of a second referendum, and Solicitor General Robert Buckland, the Government minister who has to steer the EU Withdrawal Bill through Parliament, discusses whether 19,000 EU regulations can be repatriated to UK law by March 2019.
The first episode in the second series of Chopper's Brexit Podcast hears from Dominic Grieve and John Redwood, two former Tory Cabinet ministers, as they discuss whether Theresa May's plans to use Henry VIII powers to move EU regs into British law is undemocratic; also Liam Halligan, author of "Clean Brexit - Why Leaving the EU Still Makes Sense" as well as The Telegraph's new Brexit editor Dia Chakravarty on why it is not racist to support Brexit.
