“Boris Johnson has absolutely no moral integrity” - Otto English
In this week’s News Roundtable episode, Chris Wright CBE is joined by journalist and author Christina Patterson, political commentator Edward Hardy, and author and journalist Otto English.
Where else to start other than Boris Johnson? With the damning Privileges Committee report into his Lockdown breaches released this morning, one can only describe the podcast’s opening as a post-mortem of the political career of the man who lied to Parliament. Will his allies in the media bring him back to life? The panel discuss Johnson’s behaviour during the lockdowns, the cronyism surrounding his honours list, Rishi Sunak, the damage Johnson and Truss have done to the country, and where this bombshell of a report leaves British politics going forward. Has Britain’s global reputation reached an all-time low? The panellists powerfully debate the role of the House of Lords and whether it’s got too big. They discuss the role of the media and what needs to change about it and the way we consume it to save our democracy.
