George Galloway has questioned what will happen to Brexit if the government loses its majority in the House of Commons.
The Government has had a raft of problems in recent days, with Chancellor Philip Hammond forced into an excruciating u-turn on National Insurance contributions and the Electoral Commission laying a heavy fine on the party over its election expenses.
Furthermore, a number of police forces have turned in reports to the director of public prosecutions related to the expenses allegations.
Our host, in his opening monologue, has raised a key question of what will happen should these reports lead to charges.
He said: "If the charges are proven, will these MPs have to vacate their seats in the houses of Parliament?
"If they do, the Tories no longer have majority – this will change everything in Britain until the by-elections are held.
"And if they do not manage to hold the seats, well, there’ll be the possibility of a new coalition or new government.
"If that happens, what happens to Article 50? What happens to Brexit?
"2017 will be a very interesting year."
