In the brand new episode of EU Confidential, we talk China, populism and British politics.
With Emmanuel Macron heading for China and top German officials in open disagreement over Huawei’s 5G technology, POLITICO's Andrew Gray, Rym Momtaz and Matthew Karnitschnig discuss whether Europe has a credible strategy for dealing with Beijing. Following the success of populist parties in German and Italian regional elections, we ask if Europe's political mainstream was too quick to write off the far right. And POLITICO's chief U.K. correspondent, Charlie Cooper, previews the key messages and likely Brexit outcomes from Britain's snap general election campaign.
We stay in stay in the U.K. for this week's feature interview — POLITICO's Annabelle Dickson speaks with Jeffrey Donaldson, one of the Democratic Unionist Party’s key figures in Westminster. As chief whip of the Northern Irish party, he has helped prop up Britain’s Conservative government since Theresa May lost the party’s majority in 2017. But the party is bitterly opposed to Boris Johnson's Brexit deal. Donaldson explains why his party's voters feel "betrayed" by Johnson and predicts the DUP will once again be in a "pivotal position" in the House of Commons after next month's snap election.
