The Prospect Podcast #97: The Brexit fiasco past and present, with Peter Foster
The impossible mission of resolving the backstop
In the new issue of Prospect, Europe editor for the Daily Telegraph Peter Foster writes a sprawling longread on the inside story behind what went wrong with Brexit, from Theresa May’s initial leadership speech to failed attempts to tackle the backstop head-on.
Foster joins the Prospect podcast this week to talk about the short, failed history of Brexit thus far, and what might be expected under Boris Johnson’s leadership. Have the Brexit talks under the new prime minister been, as some of Foster’s sources have said, a mere “sham”?
