Our last recording before the lockdown, we explore Commander Sunak’s budget-busting spending pledges in reaction to the Coronavirus, and whether no one is a Libertarian in a pandemic, or conversely everyone is.
With the lockdown rules about to be announced, we explain how the government’s response is an entirely right wing one, and why the left wing opposition waved through the budget – no questions asked.
We explore the politics of post-Covid-19, and how Boris can become the Ultimate Centrist off the back of all this spending.
How important is democracy? Should you be panic buying Baileys? And don’t you just wish we were all talking about Brexit again?
