June 23rd, 2017

Episode 1074 of 1091 episodes

Britain and the EU disagree over how to settle the rights of Europeans living in the UK. We get the reaction of some of those affected, and hear from Britons living elsewhere in Europe. Also in the programme, Qatar has been presented with a list of 13 demands by its neighbours if it wants the blockade to end. Adel Abdel Ghafar is a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution in Doha, and offers us his analysis. We hear from the New Zealanders who are building and decorating their own coffins. Plus we look back at all the week's big business stories with Rebecca Byrne of the Wall Street Journal in London, and Anna Nicolaou, New York correspondent for the Financial Times.
