Episode 15 – What the hell is going on in Downing Street?

In recent weeks there’s been a flurry of stories about apparent chaos inside Whitehall, with ministers, civil servants and special advisors seemingly at war with each other. Just what on earth is going on? Former civil servant Neil Schofield-Hughes joins me for a spot of Downing Street kreminology.

Neil Schofield-Hughes is a retired civil servant and policy consultant. Formerly a Labour Party member, now a Lib Dem. He is the author of The Theory and Practice of Corbynism. You can find him on Twitter here, and he blogs here.

Episode 9: Prepping for No Deal Brexit

This week’s guest is James Patrick, co-creator of The Fall podcast (scroll down to the older episodes) and author of the pamphlet, Getting Ready Together. Both of these cover the topic of no-deal Brexit, and how to prepare for this or any other civil emergency.

We talked about the effects a no-deal Brexit might have on food, electricity and law and order, as well as what you could be doing to prepare yourself and your community.
