Weekly Economics Podcast: What’s going on with Brexit?

Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Marley Morris, Associate Director for Immigration, Trade and EU relations at IPPR


Brexit — remember it? Way back in the distant past of 2019 it felt like it was all the newspapers could talk about. It might feel like it’s done and dusted, but the process is still rumbling on.

We’ve got an Internal Market Bill that the government itself admits will break international law. MPs just voted through a Bill refusing to guarantee food and farming standards after we leave the EU. And apparently we’re moving the UK border to Kent.

So, what exactly is going on? What will happen when the transition period ends on New Years Eve? And what does it all mean for the UK economy?

Ayeisha is joined Marley Morris, Associate Director for Immigration, Trade and EU relations at the Institute for Public Policy Research.
