The Invisible Government
You’d think Rishi Sunak would be pushing ministers to take the flack amid the current crises – but they’re remarkably quiet. Where are the rest of his Cabinet? Plus, while Eurosceptics suggested Britain’s EU departure would weaken the bloc, the opposite has happened. Quelle surprise… And we talk about the spread of toxic masculinity online. Can we stop it earlier? Special guest Anoosh Chakelian, Britain editor at New Statesman, joins our panel this week.
• “Hunt is like the villain in a kids’ cartoon, you never see him but you hear whispers of him” – Marie Le Conte
• “It’s slim pickings for Sunak, he’s inherited a party that was deliberately purged.” – Tom Peck
• “Politicians can only do okay in the media if they have okay policies, and everything is so bad right now there’s no win for the Government.” – Tom Peck
• “People abroad have no idea how things have ended up so bad in Britain.” – Anoosh Chakelian
