Michael Bowsher on Brexit Supreme Court appeal
All eleven judges of the Supreme Court will meet today to hear the governments case that the High Court ruling on Article 50 should be overturned. If the Court upholds the High Court's previous verdict, it means Prime Minister Theresa May will be required to pass an act of parliament before triggering Article 50, the legal mechanism to leave the EU. Will the judges side with Prime Minister Theresa May? Or with the investment manager Gina Miller who began all this? She's backed by expertise from lawyers Mishcon de Reya and David Pannick QC, a cross-bencher in the Lords, and co-author of Human Rights Law and Practice. Michael Bowsher QC of Monckton Chambers joined Share Radio to discuss.

This is Money: A Stressful Week
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. It’s been quite a stressful week both real and imagined. The UK banking system was put through its paces in the Bank of England’s stress test which simulated a range of disaster scenarios from crashing house prices to rising unemployment. The biggest failure proved to be the majority tax payer owned RBS, whilst it was ‘must try harder’ for Barclays and Standard Chartered. Unfortunately not all this week’s stresses have been virtual though and rising fuel prices contributed to the collapse of GB Energy affecting 160,000 customers. When it comes to finding a new supplier there’s certainly plenty of choice at least as more and more smaller firms spring up- so just what is going on with Britain’s energy market? Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce to find out. Also this week they look at the scams tricking people out of personal data and gig tickets as well as the meaty issue of what else is in the new plastic fiver. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

Dijedon Imeri looks ahead to Sunday’s Italian referendum & the affect this will have on the market
On Sunday, Italy holds a referendum. Prime Minister Matteo Renzi wants the power to streamline the country's creaking political system, reducing the power of upper house senators from blocking what he sees as essential economic reforms. But many are predicting he will lose. The worry for the markets is that a large protest vote could give the populist Five Star movement enough momentum to put Italy on a slippery slope to leave the Euro currency zone, plunging Europe into a fresh political and financial crisis. Dijedon 'Doni' Imeri is a country risk analyst for IHS Markit and he joined Share Radio Breakfast.
