With Brexit literally hours away, we convene Leaver-turned-Article-50-Revoker ROLAND SMITH and law and policy expert DAVID ALLEN GREEN to stare into the abyss. How did we get here? What could happen next? Has May engineered a Hobson’s Choice between her Bad Deal and No Deal? And what happens if nothing happens?

PLUS May blames Parliament for her own failings. Why John Bercow’s Eskine Mayhem isn’t a constitutional crisis at all. David discusses the Meaningful Vote in terms of Thanos’s Infinity Stones. The fooling of Arron Banks. Chained to a radiator with Seumas Milne. And whatever happened to old-fashioned, sane “euroscepticism”? This week’s episode was recorded before Donald Tusk’s bombshell intervention this afternoon.

“Was our group naive? I have to say yes. Euroscepticism has been taken over.”

This week’s REMAINIACS is presented by Ros Taylor with Ian Dunt. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Audio production is by Alex Rees. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
