A ROUND-UP AND REVIEW OF THE WEEK’S BIGGEST NEWS STORIES
In this week’s episode, host Chris Wright is joined by Vicky Pryce, economist and business consultant; Richard Barfield, management consultant and business author; and David Townsend, former director of social services in Camden, Haringey & Croydon.
The conversation begins by comparing how the outbreak of Covid has been handled in New Zealand and Australia compared to the UK – with news of mobile vaccination buses being used to boost vaccination drive and avoid future lockdowns.
The discussion moves on to talk about supply chain issues – empty supermarket shelves, a lack of lorry drivers and restaurant closures; as well as the challenges of distinguishing whether Brexit or the pandemic is the principal culprit.
Guests also consider Boris Johnson’s Cabinet reshuffle and the appointment of Liz Truss as foreign secretary; the upcoming Chequers reunion; and British tennis star Emma Raducanu’s historic win.
