On tour with the Minister of Chaos

Will US journalist Tom McTague’s lengthy profile for The Atlantic help us comprehend the dumbfounding appeal of Prime Minister Posh Benny Hill? Plus, what does the G7’s Biden-boosted tax rate for multinationals tell us about legislating against companies that are bigger than countries? And on the eve of the Euros, our not-very-football panel ponder the most political preamble to a sporting tournament ever.

• “Don’t vote for something just because it will f**k up another part of the country. Cos it will come back and f**k you.” – Dorian Lynskey
