The Evening Standard’s Nicholas Cecil joins the show as the Prime Minister is criticised by scientists over ‘mixed messages’ ahead of lockdown restrictions being lifted.
Boris Johnson’s ditching mandatory face coverings on public transport and in enclosed public spaces, but telling the public he ‘expects’ them to wear them anyway.
Meanwhile, some nightclub owners are flatly refusing to ask customers to show ‘covid passports’ before they’ll let them in, despite government advice to do so.
Nicholas says leading scientists fear the dangers of Covid-19 will spiralling “out of control” with a third wave peak which could last six weeks – but he’s not expecting the government to change course.
