This afternoon in the House, Health Secretary Sajid Javid announced that community transmission of the new Omicron variant has taken hold in England. So far, this version seems to be relatively mild, which leads us to wonder why, instead of trying to suppress infection from Omicron, why aren’t we holding Omicron parties?
And speaking of parties, James and Toby also question the government’s new policies to crack down on drugs at the same time The Sunday Times is reporting about traces of cocaine turning up in Parliament.
On a lighter note we talk about the guys’ shooting weekend and in Culture Corner we touch on the novelist Derek Robinson, who writes about the RAF, the film Zola and the new Amazon Prime series The Wheel of Time.
This week’s opening sound is of Javid Savid’s remarks in the House.
