New Statesman Podcast: ‘Bodies pile high’: Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings’ war of words


April 27, 2021

Stephen Bush, Anoosh Chakelian and Ailbhe Rea address the ongoing public war of words between Boris Johnson and former advisor Dominic Cummings. They discuss allegations (which Number 10 have denied) that the Prime Minister said he’d rather let “bodies pile high in their thousands” than go into a third national lockdown – and why questions over who paid for Downing Street’s refurbishment could prove more damaging than anything else.

Then, in You Ask Us, the team take your questions on why protests over the Super League weren’t policed as agressively as the Sarah Everard vigil.

One of the most annoying things about being busy is I hardly ever feel like I have the time and space to sit down and read (so long as the words aren’t on my phone screen.) There’s so many awesome publications dedicated to news and comment on UK politics and The New Statesman is one of the best. In this podcast, political editor Stephen Bush and Helen Lewis are joined by a whole host of other guests and presenters to get to the bottom of what’s going on. A super easy listen and very chatty in tone, The New Statesman Podcast is the perfect companion to the gym if you want to work out your mind as well as your body.
