Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis tells me he would love to give Brussels a shock – but a Brexit vote to leave the EU in the UK’s refrendum in June would lead to the disintegration of the European Union and a return to the xenophobia, racism and ultra-nationalism of the 1930s. He also argues that it could also lead to Boris Johnson becoming prime minister.

We also chatted about his 'erratic Marxism', whether capitalism will eat democracy, his thoughts about the European Union's treatment of Greece, his decision to resign from the Syriza government, his relationship with Alexis Tsipras and DiEM25, Yanis Varoufakis's attempt to reform the European Union.
