Raw Politics: Brexit


It's rare that so many eyes in Strasbourg become fixed on a Conservative Party conference in Birmingham but the three-day event has been overshadowed by tensions over, you guessed it, Brexit.

Raw Politics' Tesa Arcilla is joined in the Strasbourg studio by liberal Dutch MEP Marietje Schaake and Conservative British MEP John Proctor and via Skype by Politico's Jack Blanchard.
