James Torrance founded a new party to stop Brexit and save the planet

With the Tories moving ever more to the right while Labour moves left, there has been a lot of talk about whether the UK needs a new party, our answer to Emmanuel Macron’s En Marche!. Renew Britain wants to be that party. Founded in 2017, it hopes to occupy the abandoned centre ground in UK politics and to represent all those who feel like picking between red and blue is like being stuck between a rock and a hard place. But what exactly does the party stand for, what are it’s chances of success? We talked to James Torrance about how he went from being an accountant to an independent candidate in the 2017 general election to the co-founder of Renew and about why he wanted to found a new party in the first place. Of course, we also discuss the ever-present elephant in the room: Brexit. James ran as an anti-Brexit candidate and stopping Brexit is one of Renew’s core goals. But why and how do they plan to go about it?

Karen O'Reilly on how Brits in Spain think negotiations are progressing

One of the key issues in the Brexit negotiations – and one of the three highly contested matters to be put on the table this far – has been citizens rights. But all too often, both the media and politicians talk predominantly about EU citizens living in the UK while completely sidelining the fate ofBrits living abroad. For today’s podcast we brought on Karen O’Reilly, a Sociologist and research dellow at Goldsmiths University to shed some light on the forgotten side of this coin. She is part of the Brexpats project which examines the issues offreedom of movement, citizenship and Brexit in the lives of Britons resident in the European Union. We already talked to Karen’s colleague Michaela for episode 89 back in July about the initial response of Brits in France. We thought it was time to check in with the project and talk to Karen in the wake of her field trip to Spain about how expats are feeling about the state of the negotiations this far, how they have progressed and what, t...

'EU Supergirl' Madeleina Kay on her mission for a second referendum

The Remain campaign pinned all it's hopes on the intimidating power of statistics, assuming they would scare people into staying. But project fear failed. So what's the alternative for the Remainers that are staunchly continuing to advocate for a more europhilic Britain? The answer, according toartist and activistMadeleina Kay, is project fun. We talk to the23-year-oldabout dressing up as EU Supergirl at a Brussels press conference and creating such catchy tunes as "Strong and Stable My Arse," all with the aim of bringing about a second referendum. #activist #artist #Brexit #BrexitPodcast #campaigner #eu #EUreferendum #eusupergirl #jenniferhahn #MadeleinaKay #news #olliedugmore #podcast #politics #rageagainstthebrexitmachine #Referendum #Remain #remainer #secondreferendum #TimHeming #UK

Tamara Cincik on how Brexit is a monstrous fashion faux pas

The fashion industry employs over 880,000 individuals in the UK and generates upwards of £28billion for the economy, but is its voice being heard over Brexit? One woman who wants to make sure its concerns are on the agenda is Tamara Cincik, who is the brainchild behind Fashion Roundtable, a parliamentary lobbying project, that launches officially on November 21. Tamara joins Tim to discuss the role and concerns of the almost entirely pro-remain fashion industry as the UK’s exit from the European Union draws ever nearer. For more on the launch of Fashion Roundtable and to share your view visit http://fashionroundtable.co.uk/

Dr Mike Galsworthy on the importance of European collaboration for UK scientists

Elspeth Hoskins of Undivided calls for better political education for our youth

The last time we checked in with youth lobbying group Undivided it was for Episode 12 of the podcast, and fresh from the result of the EU referendum they were crowdsourcing a manifesto to take to parliament to outline the key Brexit issues for young people. Twelve months on, Tim is joined by campaign manager Elspeth Hoskins, who outlines their progress to date and explains how they are bending the ear of politicians to try and secure the future of Erasmus - the European student exchange programme - and improve political education for young people. Elspeth is also the convenor of the All Party Parliamentary group on A Better Brexit for Young People (@APPG_Brexit).

Alastair Campbell says Brexit is political suicide

The combative and eloquent Alastair Campbell has a reputation among many journalists for his belligerence. He is widely painted as a bully. YouTube is replete with videos of him going toe to toe with a who’s who of political figures and journalists. It’s clear Campbell has a public platform and voice that few others enjoy. He’s now setting about using it to try and stop Brexit.

Henry Bolton on UKIP and a new world order

Henry Bolton is the new leader of UKIP and faces a fascinating challenge, needing to realign and strategise a party on the brink of electoral irrelevance when it loses its MEPs in 2019. Rather him than me. He spoke to the Brexit Podcast about becoming the Pro-Brexit opposition, UKIP’s intention to launch a positive future for a United Kingdom outside of the EU and, obviously, how he would vote if the referendum was rerun tomorrow.
