Inflation has hit a 40 year high this week and so has our co-pilot’s frustration with the NHS.

The state of the health service is at the forefront of co-pilot Pearson’s mind, after a new report revealed the astonishing scale of NHS bureaucracy.

Allison is furious at the “parasitical layers of management” in the health service, and argues funding should be focused on providing frontline services and reducing waiting lists.

Co-pilot Halligan agrees we’re not getting our money’s worth when it comes to the healthcare system, but he’s optimistic that there could be change in the air as more public figures raise concerns about NHS inefficiency.

Liam hopes the media and public will start to demand better policies from the Government and opposition parties on healthcare and the cost of living, but predicts the latter will dominate politics for the foreseeable future.

Also climbing aboard the rocket of right thinking this week is author Dr Joanna Williams, to discuss how groupthink threatens democracy and why society needs to fight against the ‘woke mindset’.

And finally, Allison shares the unlikely way that the rising cost of living crisis has affected her beloved pooch.
