Jessica Elgot is joined by Anne Perkins, Dawn Foster and Rafael Behr to discuss Theresa May’s modest legislative agenda and the government’s faltering response to the Grenfell Tower disaster. We also hear from a cross-party selection of new MPs on their first week in parliament
It is a year since Britain voted to leave the EU and, after a turbulent 12 months in politics, Theresa May has been in Brussels to offer a new deal on European citizens’ rights with formal exit talks now under way. Meanwhile, back in parliament, her government has served up a heavily watered-down legislative agenda for the coming session. With the Conservatives in a minority, the prime minister still has not secured the formal backing of the DUP.
Joining Jessica Elgot to discuss it all are the Guardian’s political commentators Anne Perkins and Rafael Behr, and social affairs writer Dawn Foster.
