Adam Boulton and guests discuss the political fallout from the Tory rebellion over England's covid 'tier' system which replaced the national lockdown.
They also assess the delicate state of the Brexit negotiations as the end of the transition period looms.
Plus, was it 'thanks to Brexit' that the the UK was able to move quickly on regulatory approval for a vaccine?
And what about the timetable for a return to normality as Boris Johnson and Jonathan Van Tam appear to have somewhat different opinions on the months ahead.

Comment and Features editor of City AM Rachel Cunliffe;
Author of “Democracy Under Siege: Don't Let Them Lock It Down!” and “Populism and the European Culture Wars” - Frank Furedi;
