The Cabinet explodes into full-on civil war, but Theresa May is powerless to stop it. In an End of Term podcast, we assess the state of the government going into the summer break. Plus Vince Cable returns as Lib Dem leader, and we're all going to have to work forever.
Britain deserves a pay rise, say half the Cabinet. Not on my watch, say the other half. We explore the Cabinet battle over the public sector pay cap. Meanwhile, Labour's harmonious post-election mood disappears as internal hostilities resume. Also, after the disaster at the Grenfell Tower, isn't it time to pay more attention to what's going on in Britain's Town Halls. And, facing the threat of a lightning Donald Trump visit, we're rude about the leader of the free world. Once again.
As another awful week comes to an end, we look at why politics really does matter at a time of tragedy, and how the Prime Minister stumbled so badly in response to the disaster at Grenfell Tower. Plus the latest on the search for that strong and stable government, the delayed Queen's Speech, and Tim Farron's sudden departure.
As Theresa May clings to power, having driven her party off the edge of an avoidable cliff, we ask how long she'll last, what the DUP will demand for propping her up, and exactly when we'll need to sharpen those ballot pencils again. Plus we reflect on Jeremy Corbyn's amazing night, a bad result for Nicola Sturgeon, and an awful one for UKIP.
