This was the week Theresa May was supposed to activate Article 50. Instead, she announced a record-breaking u-turn on the Budget, got into a scrap with Nicola Sturgeon over Scottish independence, and saw the election expenses scandal suddenly become very serious.
When is a promise not a promise? When it's in a Tory manifesto, apparently. We look at this year's Budget blunder. Plus Theresa May's vindictive streak returns, and a surprisingly large number of references to Chorley. Plus, how you can vote for us at britishpodcastawards.com/vote (please do vote for us, by the way).
We talk through the implications of the by-elections in Copeland and Stoke Central -- and ask what it means for Jeremy Corbyn and the UKIP leader Paul Nuttall -- who've both been left with a lot to think about. Plus, why did the Prime Minister silently eyeball members of the House of Lords -- and is Donald Trump actually smarter than the rest of us?
Jeremy Corbyn is finally on the winning side in the Commons. Admittedly he had to vote with the Conservatives to experience victory, but still... the fight starts here, apparently. We weigh up the Labour leader's Brexit tactics, and ask why John Bercow appears to have forgotten what his job as Speaker actually involves.
Just as Donald Trump earns the world's disdain (again) for shutting America's doors to refugees, Theresa May arrives to tell him he's swell. Paul Osbourne and Robert Meakin try to work out why, as well as discussing the Brexit court ruling, and Jeremy Corbyn's double by-election headache.
