Heather Stewart is joined by Jill Rutter, Ryan Shorthouse and Gaby Hinsliff to discuss the political landscape since the general election 2017 and Jessica Elgot presents spinners’ and MPs’ memories of election night. Plus, Helen Pidd on Chris Grayling, a disastrous timetable-change and who pays for rail chaos?
