The Week Unwrapped: The B word

Does Brexit mark the end of the EU? What’s going on with the euro? And what does Remain now look like?

In a live special from the Podcast Live: Politics festival in London, Olly Mann, The Week and special guest Iain Dale cover some fairly large news that we’ve been avoiding until now - Brexit!

In this week’s episode, The Week Unwrapped looks at these less-reported Brexit issues:

Nexit, Itexit and Frexit

Back in 2016, arch-Brexiteer Michael Gove claimed that a UK withdrawal from the EU would herald “the democratic liberation of a whole continent”. But with the Brexit deal negotiations still rumbling on more than three years later, the cabinet minister now predicts that the bloc will survive intact. So will the other 27 member states opt to remain - or leave?

Future of the eurozone

Not long after becoming head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi famously said he would do “whatever it takes” to save the euro. Now that he is making way for Christine Lagarde, the question is: did he do enough to save the single currency, and what does that mean for the future of the eurozone?

The consequences of Remain

The vote to leave the EU has already reshaped domestic politics and the perception of Britain in the eyes of the world. So what would happen if we changed our minds? The panel explores the democratic consequences, as well as the impact on the UK’s bargaining position and its future in Europe.
