Preview: Peston


Another explosive week in politics, specifically the government’s approach to Brexit, the good faith of its negotiations and the sincerity of its willingness to be bound by the law or the Queen. There is certainly a lot for Robert Peston to get through tonight.

Hoping to prise a an ounce of sense from those inside the Westminster bubble, Peston invites to the studio Andrea Leadsom and Rory Stewart. While former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard won’t be short of a view on the rise of populism, Brexit and the UK’s changing influence on the world stage.

Co-presenter Anushka Asthana will help Peston fuel the conversation in the studio and online, with updates from social media taking in perspectives from viewers, experts and key-players throughout the programme.

Peston – Wednesday at 10.45pm on ITV.
