Overview

Join presenter Sebastian Payne and guests for a live recording of the FT’s UK Politics Podcast, a weekly in-depth discussion of political news and views.
 
After last year’s intense parliamentary drama, with its twists, turns and cliffhangers, the team turn their attention to Boris Johnson’s attempt to “Get Brexit Done” now that he has his majority, and to Labour’s leadership contest. Can the party digest the lessons of its election defeat in time to provide a government-in-waiting? Will the PM keep his promise to conclude talks with the EU by the end of this year?
 
Robert Shrimsley, Miranda Green and the rest of the FT panel of experts have prowled the corridors of power for years without losing their fascination with SW1, policies and personalities. Now they want to hear your questions. As always, the debate will be well-informed and good humoured. See you there.

Note: Those aged under 18 will not be granted entry to the event.
