Pinged people can’t pull pints: START YOUR WEEK with Arthur Snell

New COVID infections are trending downwards. Has Johnson’s Freedom Day gamble paid off, or are we just in a moment of calm before a new wave breaks? Plus pingdemic panic, vaccine passports, the Government gives up on students (again), Lord Frost tries to bore the EU into submission, and why the Taliban probably won’t take all of Afghanistan. Arthur Snell joins Andrew Harrison to lay out what’s coming in the week ahead.

• Johnson no longer has a team in Number 10 to manage the political landscape for him.”

• “Students are never going to vote Conservative. The Tories have given up on them.”

• “It’s clear that Cummings was running the show, because Johnson himself isn't capable of running anything.”
