Politics: Inside Westminster with John Crace, Liam Halligan, Jane Merrick, Tim Ross, chaired by Brexitcast’s Chris Mason
Do our daily politics and parliament feel as chaotic to insiders as to outsiders? Could Jeremy Corbyn be our next PM? Could May get another term? Would she want one? Could Brexit still not happen? Join a group of journalists and authors (at least two, Greenwich residents), from across the political spectrum, to find out answers to these urgent questions – and your own.
