Podcast: The Great Brexiteers

By MARCUS STEAD

TO CELEBRATE the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union, Greg Lance-Watkins and I recorded a special edition of our ‘Twenty Minute Topic’ series of podcasts titled ‘The Great Brexiteers’.

The Great Brexiteers posterGreg and I pay tribute to those eurosceptics who campaigned for Brexit, but sadly did not live long enough to see it delivered.

Among those we pay tribute to are Norris McWhirter, perhaps best known for his role on long-running children’s TV programme Record Breakers, Labour politicians Peter Shore and Tony Benn, as well as Greg’s friend Christopher Booker, the campaigning journalist who died last year.

We could not possibly pay tribute to everyone who did their bit, but this podcast gives a brief insight into just some of the great characters who helped make Brexit happen.
