The Bigger Picture: Italy and Trade Wars
Mike Indian, political commentator and author of the Groucho Tendency blog, discusses the hot political topics of the moment. He looks at what could happen to the Euro and the EU in the light of Italy's political crisis and whether there will be another election soon. With President Trump imposing steel and aluminium tariffs on US allies, what effect will the EU's tough response have? Will the chaos over Govia Thameslink's timetables increase support for rail nationalisation? And will Ruth Davidson's call on Theresa May to abandon the net migration target bear fruit?
