Episode 8: What’s the deal?

Episode 8: What’s the deal?

Securing a trade agreement with the EU has proved harder than initially suggested. Is politics in its current form equipped to deal with the complex reality of globalisation?

This week on Behind the News, the podcast that takes you inside our newsroom, we speak to Sir Ivan Rogers, the UK’s former representative to the EU. We discuss the possibility of an accidental no deal, the intricacies of negotiating and securing a trade agreement, and the contrast between the complexity of the globalised world and the “simplism” of modern politics.
