This week, the UK will publish its wish list for talks with the EU-- as they accuse Brussels of taking too long to agree theirs. So what does Brexiteer and former Conservative Party Leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith make of it all? Ahead of Labour members voting on their next leadership team, we hear what Richard Burgon would offer the party if elected as Deputy. And what’s next for the Lib Dems? Layla Moran tells us she’d like to see the party joining forces with Labour.
Adam is joined throughout the programme by Jess Brammar from HuffPost, and Laura Hughes from the Financial Times.
Boris's Shiny New Cabinet
As the dust settles on the dramatic reshuffle, what should we make of Boris Johnson’s refreshed cabinet? The Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, now with added responsibilities for the Northern Powerhouse, gives us an insight into the direction ahead. And Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell explains why he thinks the new Chancellor Rishi Sunak is “a stooge”. Also on the programme, our Newby of the Week is Munira Wilson from the Lib Dems. Joining us throughout the show are the Evening Standard's Ayesha Hazarika and former Special Adviser to Sajid Javid, Salma Shah.
Data Breach? The Labour leadership campaign gets nasty.
Labour has reported two members of Sir Keir Starmer's leadership campaign team to the Information Commissioner, over a potential data breach of the party's member database. Sir Keir's team call the allegations 'utter, utter nonsense'. The Party insists it was their duty to report the issue.
John Pienaar discusses this story with former Labour Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer, and Sir Keir's campaign chair Jenny Chapman. Also on the programme, what is the Government's plan for the Supreme Court? We ask current Lord Chancellor Robert Buckland. Our pundits this week are Jason Groves from the Daily Mail, Kate Proctor from the Guardian, and the comedian Grace Campbell.
