COVID gamble: Coherent or confusing?

Adam Boulton and guests assess the government’s COVID gamble after the prime minister lifted all remaining restrictions in England against a backdrop of increasing infections and deaths.

The vaccination programme is powering on but those IN power have had to change tack somewhat over the issue of self-isolation and so called “vaccine passports” which will soon be required at nightclubs and other large events.

The panel also discuss another potential U-turn with the suggestion that National Insurance contributions could increase to pay for social care reforms in England which goes against a Conservative manifesto pledge from 2019.

Joining Adam this week are the assistant editor at The Spectator, Isabel Hardman, deputy online editor at the New Statesman Rachel Cunliffe and Sky’s chief political correspondent Jon Craig.
