Episode 24: Northern Powerhouse Minister: 'Stop this London-centric whingeing and make Brexit a success'
Listen to the Telegraph's weekly Brexit podcast, hosted by Chief Political Correspondent Christopher 'Chopper' Hope and recorded at the historic Red Lion pub, a stone's throw from the Houses of Parliament.
Conservative MPs should stop their "London-centric whingeing and back-biting" in order to focus on Brexit, according to the Northern Powerhouse Minister, Jake Berry.
Talking to Chopper's Brexit Podcast on Thursday, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State claimed that northern constituents are right to be "furious" about the government's leadership issues: "It's a load of Tom Cobblers," the Minister said. "[Theresa May] is a brilliant Prime Minister for the North of England... there's no room in my world or in the North of England for anyone else to be doing that job."
Also on Chopper's Brexit Podcast this week, Lord Hayward of Cumnor - the only pollster to predict the result of the 2015 General Election and the result of the referendum - discusses whether the shake-up of constituency boundaries might help Theresa May win in 2022. Plus Christopher Hope meets David Babbs of 38 Degrees, one of the country's largest campaign groups bringing Leave and Remain voters together to embrace Brexit.
