The One With Mitch Benn

20th October 2017

This week MITCH BENN – comedian, musician and treacherous mind-controlled slave of Brussels – joins us in the Brexit Bus as it screams towards the brick wall of No Deal. And he’s quite optimistic. “What there is to be won here,” he tells us, “we on the Remain side are winning.”

Plus: Why Theresa May is telling the EU one thing about Brexit and the UK another. Alan Partridge vs Malcolm Tucker in The Big Issue. And it turns out Britain really did vote itself poorer. As Mitch so picturesquely puts it…

“I no more want a successful Brexit than I want to successfully slam my balls in the car door.”

This episode of REMAINIACS is presented by Peter Collins with Ros Taylor and Ian Dunt. Producers are Matt Hall and Andrew Harrison. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.

Brexit: The No Deal Means Doom Edition

13th October 2017

This week on the Brexit podcast that doesn’t want a bloody blue passport… The grisly spectre of NO DEAL is back from the dead. Are these morons REALLY going to crash us out of the EU with no settlement at all? Special guest ALEX ANDREOU – columnist, actor, cat liberationist – on Lexit, the triumph of irrationalism, and how Britain is breaking every bargain it ever made with EU citizens.

Plus some Brexiteers ramp up the search for scapegoats, while others tell us Britain’s future as the Cursed Earth of Europe will be good for us. What a time to be alive!

“British politics is entering its Wagnerian phase.”

AL MURRAY versus Brexit

29th September 2017

BREXPLICIT LANGUAGE ALERT: This week special guest and Great British comic AL MURRAY wades into the Brexit mess in no uncertain terms (and he hasn’t even got his Pub Landlord hat on).

How quickly does Nigel Farage’s bloody-good-laugh persona dissolve when you stand against him in a General Election? Is the Pub Landlord suffering a terrible case of Bregret and confusion? And what the hell is really going on with Labour’s invisible Brexit policy? Best not play this one on the school run unless you want the kids to learn exciting new vocabulary.

Also this week: major shout-outs for the first of our PATREON supporters. Will YOUR name be read out in comedy fashion by Al or one of the panel? If you want to support your favourite hour of treachery and subversion, visit our PATREON page at http://www.patreon.com/remainiacscast

The One With Gina Miller

22nd September 2017

It’s an exciting week as we welcome Superhero of Remain GINA MILLER to tell us about her battles over Article 50 and now the Government’s “deal” with the DUP, the future of the battle against Brexit, and how she made Nigel Farage VERY uncomfortable on a TV studio sofa.

Plus, BORIS JOHNSON, BUSTED FLUSH: Did the Foreign Secretary actually read that pro-Brexit screed before he sent it to the Telegraph? (We suspect not). Has the Talking Fatberg finally followed his ambitions too far? Also: Ringo Starr, Leave supporter, and why working for DExEU is like having Enron on your CV.

Plus we’re delighted to debut our brand-new theme tune by the great British band CORNERSHOP. Had a brimful of Brexit? So have we…

Plus: the sheer, unadulterated shame of the EU Withdrawal Bill and all your usual favourites.

“These lies will be on Boris Johnson’s gravestone.”

BREXIT BUST-UP: Don Felipe vs Dirty Davis

4th August 2017

This week on the podcast that gets through European customs faster than Trump gets through Comms Directors… After that shocking Brextremism poll, do Leave voters REALLY want their kids to be poorer? Ian gets trolled by David Davis’s new Chief of Staff. Is the Duke of DExEU really positioning himself as an even worse PM than we’ve already got? And if you thought that Leave voters would suffer most under Brexit, there’s a plot twist. It might be Remain areas that really feel the pain. Plus the panel answers YOUR questions in #AskRemainiacs
