The B words: Backstops and Brexit. Bullying and Bercow. Why is the culture of intimidation so difficult to tackle? Why is there so little agreement on the way forward? Some have called for The Speaker to step down, but others want him to remain in place until there is some clarity on Brexit.
But the timetable for that Brexit agreement is still far from clear. Theresa May has been in Brussels today, but what had been billed as a last ditch attempt for a deal with the EU27, now looks like just another battle on the road to eventual separation.
To debate all that and more:-
- Baroness Jones, Maggie Jones from Hove in Sussex for Labour
- Tim Aker MEP, from Thurrock in Essex for UKIP
- Sir Roger Gale MP, the Conservative MP for North Thanet, and
- Caroline Lucas, the Brighton Pavilion Green MP
