Boris blues on The View

Sky's review of the morning papers

I appeared today with Ian Dunt, editor of, on Sky’s morning paper review The View with Adam Boulton:

We discussed why Boris Johnson appears to have lost the plot on tackling Covid-19, and I talked about how Israel seemed to have lost that particular plot too. The fiendish and unparalleled difficulties and dilemmas that the pandemic poses to any government are being hugely exacerbated by incompetence and a failure of focused and consistent leadership. We also discussed various scandalous revelations about politicians, which are filling distasteful column inches in the newspapers.

You can watch the discussion in the video above.
