    Former Head of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove joins Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan’s rocket of right-thinking after British intelligence agencies described the Covid-19 lab leak theory as “feasible” – an idea he has long backed. In an explosive interview, Sir Richard tells listeners why China has behaved “appallingly” over the pandemic, and why he believes the US has intelligence on the origins of the virus. Plus, he has some particularly disquieting words for the WHO.

    Also on the show: Liam tells us why he believes Boris Johnson has had a welcome change of heart towards his scientific advisers, Allison channels her inner “Velma”, and our co-pilots defy the pandemic doom-mongers and celebrate “zero Covid day”.

    Allison and Liam will be replying to comments beneath this article on Thursday 3rd June from 11am-12pm, and Telegraph subscribers can hear the full Sir Richard Dearlove interview here:
