Text size Aa Aa

Tonight's Raw Politics came to you live from Strasbourg.

First on tonight's agenda was the "Brexit chaos" gripping the UK government in the wake of Prime Minister Theresa May's announcement that she called off Tuesday's crucial vote on her Brexit deal.

Over in France, Macron delivered a much-anticipated address amid criticism of how he has handled protests stemming from the "gilets jaunes" (yellow vests) movement, sparked by his tax reforms.

Belgian right-wing politician Gerolf Annemans and journalist Anja Waltereit went head-to-head discussing the UN migration pact that saw the Belgian nationalists quit the government over the weekend.

Has Germany's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party just landed a "mini-Merkel" at its helm? Tonight's panel doesn't think Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (AKK) is a clone of her predecessor but they agree she needs to set herself apart from Merkel in order for the CDU party to rally behind her.
