June 21st, 2016

Episode 752 of 1091 episodes

We hear the German perspective on Britain's European Union membership referendum. Our reporter Rob Young is by Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, and talks to Jurgen Hardt, a senior MP in Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union party. And amid tension over Germany's response to Europe's migration crisis, he has also been speaking to a founder of the right-wing Alternative for Germany party. Also in the programme, the noted economist Roger Bootle offers his perspective on Britain's EU referendum. And the BBC's Diarmaid Fleming reports from Dublin on how the vote is being seen in Ireland, which has mutual trade with the UK of 1bn per week.
