THE Tories have stepped up preparations for a no-deal Brexit, and a joint no-confidence motion in the UK Government has now been lodged ... without Labour, who refused to do so.

We've also witnessed a Tory MP telling the SNP Westminster leader to "go back to Skye", Jeremy Corbyn being accused of calling Theresa May a "stupid woman", and a debate around Tory immigration policies.

Discussing those issues in this week's National podcast is editor Callum Baird, community editor Shona Craven and reporter Kirsteen Paterson.
