Episode 636 of 836 episodes

Will this great international capital be harmed by the UK's decision to leave the EU? Ed Butler hits the city streets to find out. Fionnuala Earley of estate agents Hamptons International explains why Brexit may actually make top end London property more attractive. Journalist Ben Judah explains how foreign workers - and dirty foreign money - have transformed his hometown out of recognition. Ed heads to London's financial centre, the City of London, where Gary Campkin of financial services lobbying group TheCityUK puts a brave face on his industry's future. And across town in Bloomsbury, David Phillips of the Institute of Fiscal Studies tells Ed why the rest of the UK may no longer be able to rely on pro-European London to foot such a large share of the national tax bill.
