Depressing Guardian Today in Focus podcast which saw Helen Pidd go to Bolsover in England and talk to some young Labour Party members there who are convinced Leavers. And why would that be?

Just reading this this morning was wondering at the framing. It reports the news that: The scale of no-deal panic gripping major companies has been thrown into sharp focus by a series of damage-limitation announcements, as corporate Britain signalled it is running out of patience with Westminster gridlock. And notes that: P&O opts for Cypriot […]A
