The gloves were pulled off in Westminster this week as Dominic Cummings unleashed his hit-and-run attack on the government’s handling of the pandemic – and hosts of The Telegraph’s Planet Normal podcast, Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan, looked on . On this week’s show, Liam tells listeners why Mr Cummings’ performance did his own intellect a disservice, Allison tells us why she thinks Health Secretary Matt Hancock is the real pantomime villain, and our podcast hosts agree that the former adviser may have also dealt a blow to many.
Also on the podcast: Retired pediatrician and activist Dr. Ros Jones tells listeners why she’s concerned politicians are being hasty about children and vaccines, Allison and Liam lament Britain’s entry into the Eurovision Song Contest and one of our presenters treats listeners to a musical interlude of his own.
