As the partygate scandal reaches a crescendo with the release of the much-anticipated Sue Gray report, our co-pilots bring you their highlights from the revelations.
But is the report damning enough to see Boris Johnson bounced out of Downing Street?
Podcast co-host Liam Halligan warns the Prime Minister will never truly be rid of partygate, because the scandal will forever be part of his political epitaph. But Liam still thinks Boris Johnson will scrape by, and argues the political and media class risk looking ‘astonishingly out of touch’ if they continue to focus on the scandal while the cost of living soars.
Co-host Alliso Pearson doesn’t think the PM is out of the woods just yet. She isn’t bothered about how many canapés Boris Johnson ‘gobbled up,’ but rather that he was telling the nation they must obey draconian coronavirus measures while ignoring them himself.
Allison also takes issue with ‘game-playing’ inside Downing Street, after the suspicious timing of a new cost of living support package which she believes is as much designed to ‘save the backside of Boris Johnson’ as it is to help those struggling.
Also hopping aboard the rocket of right thinking this week is Calvin Robinson, a black trainee Priest who was blocked from being ordained in the Church of England due to his anti-woke beliefs, including that Britain is not institutionally racist.
Calvin shares his despair at how ‘wokeness’ is taking over the church, and reveals how his experiences as an ethnic minority have often been dismissed by the ‘metropolitan liberal elite’ due to his Conservative views.
And finally, Allison debuts her best Mansfield accent – listen at your peril!
