Rank #3: 41: James O’Brien vs. the Brex-o-sphere

Podcast cover
Read more

Last sane man on the airwaves and giant of Remain JAMES O’BRIEN of LBC joins us for possibly THE most epic interview we’ve yet had, in a special take-no-prisoners edition of Remainiacs. From BBC balance to Paul Dacre’s reign of terror over Tory ministers to Farage, Minford Madness and the DUP on Viagra, James puts it ALL to rights. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this one. 

Plus: The European Research Group’s latest punishment beating for Theresa May. Peace in Northern Ireland gets thrown on the Brexit bonfire. Can new anti-Brexit party Renew move the needle? Why a Ragged Army can beat an organised mass. And the weaponisation of complaint. 

This week’s moral: “Just because you’ve won the argument, it doesn’t mean you’re right."

This week’s REMAINIACS is presented by Dorian Lynskey with Ros Taylor and Ian Dunt. Studio production: Jack Claramunt. Producer: Andrew Harrison. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.

Rank #4: 111: D’HONDT STOP BELIEVING: Fighting the EU Elections and more with guest Matt Forde

Podcast cover
Read more

This week MATT FORDE – stand-up, ‘Mock The Week’ regular, creator of touring show ‘Brexit Through The Gift Shop’ and interviewer of political heavyweights on his podcast ‘The Political Party’ – joins us to get psephological for the upcoming EU Parliament elections. Should we embrace or fear a vote that Theresa May definitely doesn’t want? Can Remain parties co-ordinate, which side’s vote is most likely to split… and how does the D’Hondt system work anyway?

Plus how can a fatally split Tory party fight EU elections AND a leadership campaign AND negotiate with Brussels AND get Labour onside when they can’t even do one thing at a time let alone four? Alex gets glued to a train by a passing Brexiter and turns up late. Matt’s terrifyingly accurate William Hague and Tony Blair voices. And how would our guest’s beloved Brian Clough have handled Brexit?

“This is our chance to do a Ukip.”

Rank #5: 65: FOOD! ADEQUATE FOOD! Stockpile special plus Jason Arthur of FFS

Podcast cover
Read more

This week on the podcast that David Campbell Bannerman MEP wants to see prosecuted for “extreme EU loyalty”… Does Britain have what it takes to live on a diet of nettle soup? Will people who never actually experienced WWII ever shut up about the “Blitz Spirit”? And how research shows that Leavers really are more aggressive online.

PLUS our special guest JASON ARTHUR of the youth anti-Brexit campaign FFS (For our Future’s Sake) comes in to explain what’s going on with The Young People, how to get lightly disguised Leaver Jeremy Corbyn to come out against Brexit… and how the Brexit nightmare will shape an entire generation’s political ideals for decades into the future.

“Can you imagine if we’d had wi-fi in the 1940s… and then the Luftwaffe knocked out the wi-fi?” 

HEATWAVE NOTE: We had to record this one with the windows open (it’s health and safety gone mad) so listen closely for passing aeroplanes, beeping taxis and people clattering up and down the stairs. Real radio, real talk.

Rank #6: 108: PRIME MINISTER JEREMAY: National Unity special with guest Tom Kibasi

Podcast cover
Read more

Wonders will never cease. All her avenues exhausted, Theresa May reaches out to the only person who can help in her hour of need. And that would be… Jeremy Corbyn?

This week we look at the minefield that is the Theresa-Jezza Love-in. Is compromise possible any longer in the snakepit of the Commons? Who will carry the can for Brexit if they pull it off? And what does this mean for Labour’s General Election plans and the future of the two parties? As luck would have it we recorded right before Emily Thornberry launched her People’s Vote challenge to Corbyn but what do you want from us? Absolute topicality?

Also this week special guest TOM KIBASI of the Institute for Public Policy Research joins us for a cheerful – yes, cheerful! – view of Brexit from the progressive end of things. He tells us why the real radicalisation of the Conservative party isn’t anything to do with Brexit and says there was another big lie told during the Referendum: “People were told not to risk something they never had.”

In a double whammy of left-of-centre optimism we talk to RUTGER BREGMAN, author of Utopia For Realists And How We Can Get There. Universal income, a 15-hour work week and the end of “bullshit jobs” sounds great, but how does it relate to Brexit? Oh, and we start with a tribute to the great Orchestral Maneouvres In The Dark, on tour throughout Europe YES EUROPE later this year.

Rank #7: 104: EDGE OF DESTRUCTION: Time runs out with guests Roland Smith and David Allen Green

Podcast cover
Read more

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.”

The sheer fantasy of the government’s customs plans. And who decided that CENTRISTS were the new class enemy?

“Who cares who’s on the Iron Throne when the White Walkers of Brexit are coming?”

Rank #9: 97: CAVALIERS vs. ROUNDHEADS with guest MARK GATISS of League Of Gentlemen

Podcast cover
Read more

This is a LOCAL podcast for LOCAL people… We are thrilled to have the great MARK GATISS – writer, star of ‘The League Of Gentlemen‘, 'Sherlock' and 'Doctor Who', and five-star unyielding Remainer – as this week’s special guest on Remainiacs. 

Listen in as Mark explains how the League unwittingly predicted the Brexit mindset, why despite the Nissan news Leave has such a grip on the North-East where he was born, “the weaponisation of nostalgia”… and which residents of Royston Vasey would have voted Remain. 

Plus! Why “alternative arrangements” means yet more blind man’s Brexit. Why Labour really fears the Backstop. More on the shameless liar Daniel Kawcynzski MP. Which Labour MP is a Pound Shop Soprano. And why you should be more relaxed about our supposed EU exit date in March but much more worried about July. 

“This really is the closest we’ve got to a civil war. We already have our Cavaliers and Roundheads. All we need is for Theresa May to go to Nottingham and raise the standard.”

Podcast cover

As MV3 turns out to be DOA we hotfoot it into febrile Soho to read the steaming entrails of the May Deal.

What happens next? Does May have any blackmail left in her sack of off-brand tricks? What will happen at the EU Parent-Teacher meeting on April 10? Are we closer to Revoke or a People’s Vote? Michael Gove’s performative jogging, the political significance of Y-fronts, and the Magic 8 Ball that is a possible General Election. And how could Theresa May’s psychology finally scupper us?

Naomi Smith has gin. Dorian Lynskey has Lem-Sip. Alex Andreou has the healthy glow of a man who’s been in Mykonos since February. Come on in, the recriminations are fine.

Few MPs have grown in status since the Brexit mess unfolded – but DAVID LAMMY, the member for Tottenham, is one of them. We’re delighted to have him down in the Remainiacs Bunker to discuss the unsavoury roots of Brexit, what the Windrush scandal means… and whether Labour will ever get off the fence regarding our membership of the EU?

As Theresa May cravenly caves to the Brextremists yet again, are we finally trapped on a course for the catastrophic Hard Brexit that everyone fears? Lawyer and commentator DAVID ALLEN GREEN (also known as Jack Of Kent) joins us to explore escape routes from Brexit, the legal landscape around a People’s Vote, and much more.

Plus: Donald Trump’s drive-by shouting. The ghost of David Davis’s reputation. And when “Tommy Robinson” gets out of jail, will Trump money try to create a dangerous British alt.right with him as its figurehead? It’s a grim week and no mistake.

Rank #13: 105: Special edition: TONY BLAIR on this week’s crisis, how to win another Referendum and more

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s a big one. TONY BLAIR, former Labour Prime Minister and now head of his Global Institute, talks to Dorian, Naomi and Ian about escape routes from the current Parliamentary chaos, how his own policies relate to the roots of Brexit, what a good Prime Minister would do under the catastrophic circumstances Theresa May has built for herself… and how this weekend’s march can sway the Government when the march against his own Iraq policy didn’t.

It’s a fascinating conversation but a word of warning: it’s a bit of a boomy room. Watch your bass-bins, we’re tellin’ you.  

“I regret not doing more in the Referendum. I kept out of it. But afterwards I thought this is such a terrible mistake that I’ve got to do everything I can to help stop it.”

Podcast cover

The most fearsome spin doctor in politics is now a doughty fighter for Remain. ALASTAIR CAMPBELL enters the Remainiacs basement bunker to tell us what Remainers should really be doing… why Prime Minister David Cameron (remember him? posh chap?) kept avoiding the weirdly asocial Theresa May… and why we’re in a nightmare era of very serious issues decided by very un-serious people. But do the roots of the post-truth era lie in the same victory-at-all-costs news management that Alastair Campbell pioneered? 

Plus! If May’s transition deal is annoying the Brexit ultras, it can’t be all bad, right? Will the Cambridge Analytica scandal shift the Brexit needle? And a brand new comic that’s all about Brexit. 

“We made a choice whether to pay for stuff with money or with our data. We opted to pay for it with our data – and BOY are we paying now.”

The March. The Revoke petition. The Government that can’t govern and the amendment that put MPs in charge of Britain’s destiny at last. Was this the week that Brexiters lost control of Brexit? 

In that quiet moment before the Indicative Votes we welcome JOHN HARRIS – the Guardian’s wandering Brexit Britain correspondent – to work out where we are, what happens next, and what the unheard parts of Britain will make of the Brexit endgame. Plus: What Brexit will do to Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls and skateboards from Bristol. The crap punk roots of the No Deal ultras. And why Labour keeps on fattening the pig for market day.

Rank #18: 52: Lords Almighty! Unpicking that rebellion with our special guest, Greens co-leader CAROLINE LUCAS MP

Podcast cover
Read more

After those pesky, meddlin’ peers in the House of Lords took a wrecking ball to Theresa May’s Brexit policy, we sort through the rubble with our special guest, Greens co-leader and Brighton Pavilion MP CAROLINE LUCAS.

Are the Greens picking up votes because unlike everyone but the Lib Dems, they’re proudly and unabashedly anti-Brexit? How do they square some of their Lexity supporters with their internationalist instincts? And why is the freebooting neoliberal Single Market ironically quite good for green politics after all? 

Plus: Are we really going to join the EEA? Does the Lords rebellion mean that Jeremy Corbyn has run out of procrastinating time too? Why is Gavin Williamson a “ham-faced cretin”? What does the resignation of friend of the show Heidi Alexander from Parliament mean for Remain? And all the white-hot tariff talk you can handle…

“Brexit is like being sold a lovely mansion in the countryside and then finding you’ve bought a hovel with no plumbing.”

Podcast cover

Very excited to welcome legendary food journalist and Observer restaurant critic JAY RAYNER for the eye-opening, jaw-dropping hard truths of Britain’s Brexitised food policy.

Are we really only days away from empty shelves in the event of Hard Brexit? Why is our food culture still shaped by the effects of WWII? Which parts of EU food policy ARE a disaster (that we won’t be able to influence once we leave)? And did you know that it’s now OK to eat cod, and climate change has produced a huge increase in availability of fish in the Baring Sea…?

Plus: Corbyn’s “cheap imported labour” muddle – Peter explains what the European Posted Workers Directive really entails. Did you know that British spy Christopher Steele who wrote the Trump dossier also conducted the inquiry into the Litvenenko murder? What does THAT mean? And we go nuts for BBC Northern Ireland’s spoof Brexumentary ‘Soft Border Force’ (have YOU had the Ebola?).

“There might be so little to eat that you’ll be GLAD of chlorine chicken…”

Podcast cover

As the EU Election clock ticks remorselessly down to zero we’re joined by the New Statesman’s political editor STEPHEN BUSH to survey the campaign so far and predict the upshot. What will Labour’s “all things to everyone” stance to do its vote? How do we fight the Brexit Party’s “all rage, no content’’ politics? Just how screwed are the Conservatives? Why a Farage victory might be a good thing for Remain. And we (try to) answer the only question that matters: who should Remainers vote for? 

PLUS Why the media’s middle class cringe gets Leave politicians off the hook. A first-ever Brexit football analogy for Remainiacs (plus some shocking anti-Spurs bias) from grieving Arsenal fanatic Stephen Bush. How CHUK failed to a make even a first impression. And why are we ignoring Clarabell who runs a recycling centre in Brighton?

“First you create the humiliation. Then you just seed that humiliation and benefit from it. That’s what Farage has always done.”
