Legal Matters Podcast: Alan Shatter on Brexit, new politics and the eighth amendment
Francesca Comyn is joined by former Justice Minister Alan Shatter
In this episode of Legal Matters, former Justice Minister Alan Shatter holds forth on Brexit, which he describes as "one of the most stupid acts of self-destruction" by a government, the eighth amendment and politics as an observer sport.
The former Fine Gael TD also talks to Francesca Comyn about the first part of his autobiography, Life is a Funny Business.
While it charts Shatter's early political career and the personal experiences of a childhood growing up in a Jewish family in South Dublin, he says the book was born from trying to grapple with and understand his turbulent exit from government.
