“Totally F***ing Hopeless”: Dom’s Blog-Buster Sequel

As yet another self-justifying Dominic Cummings megablog arrives, will this latest real-life No.10 Spider-Man meme affect actual politics? Barrister Jolyon Maugham joins us to explain “de facto opposition” the Good Law Project’s work on the Government’s breathtaking cronyism and back-handers, and what happens in a country where there’s no cost to lawbreaking. And five years on from the Brexit vote, Tom Peck of The Independent joins us to look at the Referendum winners who lost – and the losers who won. 

  • “Is anyone is shocked any more by shocking revelations of Boris Johnson behaving like Boris Johnson?” – Tom Peck 
  • “Matt Hancock is Boris Johnson’s human shield. The more the focus on Hancock, the less heat falls on Johnson.” – Naomi Smith
  • “This Conservative Party is like the Sex Pistols. They don’t know what they want but they know how to get it.” – Jolyon Maugham
  • “Biggest loser from Brexit? Dominic Cummings. He’s literally back where he started.” – Tom Peck
