This week there’s only one item on the agenda: the UK’s general election result.

Paul Nuttall’s victory in the Ukip leadership contest, Zac Goldsmith losing his Commons seat to the Lib Dems, and Donald Trump’s breach of diplomatic protocol over Taiwan are the three topics for this week’s podcast.
This week we look at the Kippers’ second leadership contest in several months, a controversial proposal to check refugees’ age through their teeth, and a report claiming Britain has too many graduates.
With half of us fighting the fag end of a cold, we return to discuss some literal Ukip in-fighting, the political turning of Theresa May’s Tories, a threatened return of Tony Blair and this week’s American presidential debate.
As someone who spends much of his time listening to left-wingers, I’m used to seeing people upset after losing an election.
Contrary to popular cliché, such events rarely look like the five stages of grief, and the aftermath of the British decision to leave the European Union has been no different.
