Share Politics: MPs back Article 50, Govt unveils White Paper

Share Politics: MPs back Article 50, Govt unveils White Paper
The Ayes had it - last night MPs backed the Government's Article 50 bill. A few more Parliamentary hurdles remain - not least the House of Lords - but with 498 votes in favour and only 114 dissenting, Theresa May is well on the way to triggering Brexit. But if May hoped the vote would pacify resistance in the Commons, the bashing of her Brexit Tsar this afternoon proved otherwise. David Davis, Minister for Exiting the European Union, unveiled the Government's White Paper on Brexit, putting meat on the bones of the Prime Minister's negotiating strategy. However, opposition MPs complained they weren't given enough time to study the document, with the paper published minutes before Davis stepped up to the dispatch box. For more on the Brexit bill and White Paper, Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined by Tom Brake MP, spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats on Foreign Affairs. Simon also spoke to political commentator Sunny Hundal on why Merkel - and not Trump - is the free world's only hope.

The Weeks Update: Are we on the verge of a European existential crisis?

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.
