2016: the year of Brexit - Part 1
2016 will always be remembered as the year of Brexit, even though formal negotiations to navigate our way out of the bloc are yet to begin, and doubts are still being raised about the date of March 31st 2017, when Article 50 is due to be triggered. But 2016 was the year when the vote that would change the course of British history was announced, carried out and revealed. Share Radio's Joe Aldridge has been looking into how one of the greatest political debates of our time played out.

Are we entering a new era of strike action as we move into 2017?
There is widespread concern after British Airways and the Post Office joined Southern Rail in striking over the Christmas period. According to the latest figures by the Office for National Statistics, 281,000 days were lost to strike action up until the end of October 2016, which is over 100,000 more days than the same time last year. Share Radio’s Matt Cox investigated this new era of strike action with industrial action expert Professor Chris Rowley, Visiting Fellow at Kellogg College, University of Oxford, and Professor Emeritus at Cass Business School.

Brexit Supreme Court case: a look back at day two of the government’s Brexit appeal case
It’s day three of the politically sensitive appeal that will decide whether the government or parliament has legitimate authority to trigger Brexit. On Tuesday, Lord Pannick QC opened the argument on behalf of the lead claimant, Gina Miller, labelling the government’s assertion that it was entitled to use its prerogative powers to trigger Article 50 as “inherently implausible”. So, what might we expect from day three? David Mundy, Partner and Parliamentary Agent at Westminster based law firm Bircham Dyson Bell, joined Share Radio Breakfast to discuss.
