episode 138: JUSTICE LEAGUE HITS SUPREME COURT with guest Jolyon Maugham


With the legality of prorogation being tested in the crucible of the Supreme Court, we welcome Good Law Project director and Remain legal vanguard JOLYON MAUGHAM QC to the studio to discuss exactly what’s at stake. If the Government wins this one, could future administrations simply suspend Parliament whenever it likes, as if in some authoritarian Hokey-Cokey?
Plus, the maddening detail of what would be required to implement Johnson’s imaginary deal. What does the Lib Dems going broke for revoke mean for future dealings between the Remain parties? Is Jo Swinson out-Hulking the other party leaders? Does Corbyn’s reiteration of Labour’s neutrality in any future referendum actually mean anything? And Ian finally gets to discuss modern politics as explained by the character arc of the Incredible Hulk.
Presented and produced by Andrew Harrison with Naomi Smith and Ian Dunt. Audio production by Mike Kemp for Soho Radio. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
