The Home Secretary, Priti Patel joins Christopher Hope for a wide-ranging interview, touching upon next week’s European summit, the legacy of Margaret Thatcher — and whether she’s still the “Boudicca of Brexit”.

Also on today’s episode: the Prime Minister’s father, Stanley Johnson, takes us inside his decision to join the Extinction Rebellion protests this week, and argues that his son is up to the challenge of delivering Brexit.

Plus we’re joined by Boris Starling, author of “William Shakespeare’s Brexit”, a retelling of the saga in the style of the great playwright. He tells us how Boris Johnson’s language lent itself well to the work and what Brexit has in common with Hamlet. You can find the play here:
