Share Politics: The wonderful thing about triggers
The Government has published its Article 50 bill, placing the UK on the road to departure from the European Union. The so-called 'Brexit trigger' clocks in at a mere 133 words. It must now get the approval of MPs following the Supreme Court's judgement earlier in the week. But as the Bill weaves its way through Westminster's debating floors and committee rooms, it won't just be MPs bustling away. Over in Whitehall, civil servants are preparing for the negotiations ahead, oiling the Government machinery's for the mammoth task of separating the UK from decades of EU rules and regulation. To help decipher the government's bill, and to find out if Britain's bureaucracy is ready for what comes after, Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined in the studio by Hugh Bennett, Deputy Editor at Brexit Central, and on the line by David Golten, Partner and Head of Commercial Litigation at Wedlake Bell LLP, and Gavin Freeguard, Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government and author of the 2017 Whitehall Monitor - an annual health check of the UK's civil service

The Weeks Update: Would a guaranteed income work?
The idea of basic income has been around since the 16th century. Recently, however, there has been a surge of interest in the concept, with Finland as one country currently trialing this form of guaranteed income for its citizens. Can a society really operate when income is guaranteed? Is this the future of society?

Share Politics: Westminster awaits Article 50
We're only a day on from the Supreme Court's ruling that Parliament and only Parliament has the right to trigger Brexit, and already the gears of Government have whirred into action. Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions today, Theresa May assured Parliament she will give further details of her Brexit vision in a White Paper. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister's Brexit tsar David Davis has made it clear that the Government will not dawdle in seeking Parliament's approval, claiming an Article 50 bill is imminent "within days". So, with a dizzying plethora of Parliamentary processes on the horizon, should the Government expect a smooth ride? And with an Article 50 bill passing through Westminster, how might Labour ? Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined on the line by Dr Luke Cooper, Senior Lecturer in Politics at Anglia Ruskin University and a spokesperson for Another Europe is Possible, and Peter Edwards, Editor of LabourList - self-described as Labour's biggest independent grassroots e-network.
