Podcast: Week in Review — UK Politics and Trump’s North Korea Problem

In our latest 15-minute review of the week, I speak with talkRADIO’s Paul Ross about a series of issues in UK politics before checking out Donald Trump’s sudden difficulty over his North Korean summit.

We look at regulations to limit betting on UK slot machines, at the politics over housing safety following the deadly Grenfell Tower fire in London in June 2017, and at the latest spat with the opposition Labour Party.

Then it’s a review of North Korea’s switch to pressure on Trump before the June 12 summit with Kim Jong-un, throwing the Administration into confusion.
