Iain Duncan Smith is this week’s Planet Normal stowaway, joining Telegraph columnists Liam Halligan and Allison Pearson to discuss the ‘real danger’ of annual winter lockdowns, and to tell listeners why it’s time for the West to stand up to the ‘desperate threat’ posed by China’s economy, military and ideology.

Elsewhere, Freedom Day? More like Freedom Nay. Our co-pilots threaten to move to an entirely new solar system after the PM’s recent announcement that June 21st is off. Allison comes close to self-combusting, while Liam tells us why he believes politicians have become ‘addicted to lockdown’. Plus, a listener email has one of our hosts reaching for the tissues.

Allison and Liam will be replying to comments beneath this article on Thursday 17th June from 11am-12pm: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/06/17/iain-duncan-smith-uk-us-must-strengthen-defences-against-desperate/
