The Last Word, July 2018

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:-

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

The mystic pig once again dribbled his way out from the penalty box towards two fodder-filled buckets; one flying the flag of Brazil and other adorning the colours of Chile.

The goal was that Porker would predict the winning team based on which bucket he pigged out on first and Chile just nicked it in the last second of extra time.

Porker, has excellent form after correctly predicting the outcome of England’s match against Uruguay last week.

Now all that remains to be seen is whether he’s right again or just telling porkies. If his prediction does comes true, there’s a very good chance he’ll become a little pig-headed!
