Anushka Asthana heads back to a once-again bustling House of Commons to find out if a soft Brexit is back on the table following last week’s shock election results.

On the podcast today:

  • Labour’s shadow Brexit secretary, Keir Starmer, lays out the party’s demands for a new approach to Brexit negotiations.
  • Two Tory politicians on either side of the Brexit divide, the newly unseated Neil Carmichael and staunchly pro-Brexit MP James Cleverly, argue for and against a soft Brexit.
  • Yvette Cooper outlines her ideas for a cross-party Brexit commission.
  • Guardian sketch writer John Crace talks about the runaway popularity of (arguably) his greatest invention: the Maybot.
