The Weeks Update: Are we on the verge of a European existential crisis?
If all goes according to plan in Westminster, Theresa May will soon have her finger on the Brexit trigger. Once the Prime Minister fires the starting shot, a clock of two years begins ticking for Britain to negotiate its exit from the European Union. With May seeking controls on immigration alongside special access to the single market and customs union, the core pillars of the European project will be put to the test. Brexit negotiations alone will be a sizeable workout for EU leaders, but Europe must proceed against an uncertain backdrop. Donald Trump’s ascendancy in the United States has not only cast the post-war bedrocks like NATO in doubt, but has emboldened Eurosceptic populists on the continent. A series of electoral trials awaits in 2017: the French presidential election in the Spring; a German parliamentary election in the Autumn. Regardless of what the final British-EU relationship will look like, it remains an open question as to whether the EU itself will be recognisable in a year. Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined by László Andor, a former European Commissioner for Employment Social Affairs and Inclusion, and our regular economic commentator Professor John Weeks.

This is Money: Don't be fooled by the FTSE.
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. We’re still on course for Brexit, albeit pending Parliament’s approval. Already a number of banks seem intent on following through on their threats to relocate jobs, but what about the local branches already shutting down across the UK? Meanwhile the FTSE continues to soar on the back of the slumping pound but questions remain as to the underlying health of the UK economy. Inflation also looks set to rise as does national debt although the latest GDP figures do offer some good news at least. To discuss how people can save and invest for the turbulent times ahead Georgie Frost is joined in the studio by Editor Simon Lambert and Deputy Editor Adrian Lowrey. Plus just when BT thought their problems couldn’t get any worse we’ll be announcing the results of the annual Money Mail Wooden Spoon Awards. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.
