Brexit: the Chequers 'deal' that was good for less than 24 hours. Plus .... Donald Trump: as he starts his visit in Oxfordshire this evening, we ask - why should we welcome him? And .... Defence: how much should we spend, when demands on the Treasury are going up?

To debate all that - and what we can learn from Gareth Southgate's England squad:-

  • Stephen Morgan, Labour MP for Portsmouth South
  • Layla Moran, Lib Dem MP for Oxford West & Abingdon, and
  • Tobias Ellwood, Tory MP for Bournemouth East and Defence Minister

The Last Word, June 2018

Planes, trains and ... Brexit. Britain's obesity crisis; and predictions for the World Cup. Whose money is on Uruguay? To debate a difficult week in Parliament for the Government:-

  • Baroness Smith from Sussex for Labour
  • Craig Mackinlay MP, from South Thanet for the Conservatives, and
  • Kelly-Marie Blundell from Lewes, for the LibDems

Are The House of Lords, 'traitors in ermine' as some of the Brexit-supporting press have suggested? Or are they just doing their duty?

As Brexit battles continue, we ask what next for the tortuous passage of Brexit legislation through Parliament. And grammar schools: what will Damian Hinds's £50 million actually do?

And the Royal Wedding this weekend: do we need more bunting, bands, and ceremonial - or is it time for a slimmed down Scandinavian-style monarchy?

To debate all that and more:

  • Lord Fox, Chris Fox from the Liberal Democrats in Windsor
  • Victoria Prentis, Conservative MP for Banbury, and
  • Alan Whitehead, Labour MP for Southampton Test

The Last Word, March 2018

The dramatic events in Salisbury with the poison attacks on a quiet provincial city have put it centre stage. How should Britain and the World respond ?

And a year to Brexit: did people vote to return the country to "When passports were blue, the map of the British part of the world was pink, and faces were white" as the Lib Dem leader claims?

To debate that -

  • Baroness Brinton of Kenardington in Kent
  • Peter Kyle, Labour MP for Hove in Sussex, and
  • Michael Tomlinson MP, the Conservative member for Mid-Dorset and North Poole
