Brexit Breakdown podcast: Rafael Behr, Asa Bennett and Jill Rutter
The UK in a Changing Europe
In this episode, James Millar speaks to to Rafael Behr from the Guardian, Asa Bennett, Brexit commissioning editor at the Telegraph and Jill Rutter, senior research fellow at The UK in a Changing Europe. They discuss, what happened at the elections and what it means, who the likely candidates are for Labour leadership and whether Brexit is now done.
Monocle Reads: Asa Bennet talks to Georgina Godwin about his new book, ‘Romanifesto’. Boris Johnson loves to chuck in the odd Latin phrase but perhaps without due regard for Veritas. In this, is he much different from the Romans themselves? ‘Romanifesto’ looks at how the politics of 1,500 years ago influence our modern system and asks what today’s politicos can learn from their Roman predecessors.
Welcome along to the Book Club for this week. Iain is joined by Asa Bennett to discuss his book 'Romanifesto'.
