Informative and enjoyable but with a little bias perhaps

Excellent debate and discussion, representatives from all main parties although I do find the language is often quite patronising with deep breaths and impatience when it comes to discussing the opposition parties, particularly Corbyn - with no admission of a growing left of centre ‘younger’ socialist electorate. I also wonder if they forget that half of the voting public didn't want Brexit and millions strong have been fighting the destructive referendum vote ever since.

EU/EC imperialism

It took 90 years (1857-1947) for India to gain independence from the British Raj.

How long is Brexit going to take?

There are also similarities with partition - EU/EC protectionist policy dictates that if the UK leaves the EU, there must be a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland (to protect the EU's single market).

A recent televised 'fly on the wall' documentary appeared to show one of the EU's Brexit co-ordinator Guy Verhofstadt's aides laughingly describing 'Mrs May's deal' as the UK becoming an EU colony.

Good focus on Westminster developments

Good update on current political issues, but it could usefully have less time with MPs and more with analysts, journalists etc. Also, it's only 50 minutes!
