Stranger Pings

As Cummings:Kuenssberg gives us yet more Classic Dom content, are we now fine with unelected advisors trying to topple Prime Ministers – or for that matter, Prime Ministers giving the Queen COVID? Freedom Week: has the Government just given up trying to control the virus? Special guest Charles Arthur, author of Social Warming: The Dangerous and Polarising Effects of Social Media, explain the forces that make Facebook and Twitter increasingly noxious. And 60 glorious years of Prime Minister’s Questions.
