As the old saying goes, a week is a long time in politics.

But what really goes on in the corridors of power?

Are the theatrics in the House of Commons just for show, or do they really have an impact on the way the country is run?

And following all the political unrest and uncertainty surrounding Brexit, can businesses in the UK look to the future with confidence?

We speak to one of the region’s best-known MPs, Andrew Bridgen MP, to get his take on the crucial role the East Midlands plays in driving the UK economy forward.

Mr Bridgen has experienced at first-hand the machinations of Westminster and Whitehall. Following a successful career in business, he won the North West Leicestershire seat for the Conservatives, in 2010, and has held it ever since.

He talks to Love Business Podcast host Richard Shakespeare about the economic prosperity of the East Midlands and what the future holds after Brexit, the East Midlands Gateway development and the crucial role it will play as a logistics hub at the heart of the UK, and

the findings of Deloitte’s recently-released CFO survey, which showed a boost in business confidence.

If you want to know what it’s really like to be in the thick of it, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
