“Outwitted by goo.”
This week in Euro-Plague news: How is Sweden’s risky approach to the COVID crisis really working? James Savage of news network The Local joins us from Stockholm to give us the view on the ground. Plus: That weird feeling when the person demanding a proper merciless lockdown is… evil Dominic Cummings? Alan Sugar’s totalitarian boomer tweets. And why we shouldn’t trust people who say we don’t trust journalists. Also… towns!
- “The Brexiters are realising that the economic hit of COVID will be so enormous that Brexit will seem small beer. And they are hoping to take advantage of that.” – Ros Taylor
- “They’ve created the idea that they’re fighting a sentient enemy… because the alternative is to admit that our government was outwitted by goo.” – Alex Andreou
