    The Telegraph’s Associate Editor Gordon Rayner has spent recent weeks deconstructing the government’s actions in the crucial early stages of the pandemic. He’s been given the inside track from Cabinet ministers, sat down with members of SAGE and grilled government advisers to find out what really happened this time last year – or more accurately, what went wrong. On this week’s Chopper’s Politics he lets chief political correspondent and podcast host Christopher Hope into those conversations, and decides whether more could have been done, or if hindsight really is 20/20.

    Are ministers willing to accept that the UK should have locked down earlier? What effect did keeping borders open have on case rates? And is “following the science” always the right approach? All is revealed within.
